To The Beyond In Song

When dead am I one cold day,

underground I’ll finally behave.

Into a box then earth it caves

around me and my stiffened face.

Though my body rots slowly gone,

they’ll be some memories or songs

that pass from a preacher’s charm

that find ears where they belong.

As color from the sky it disappears.

As the ground receives hurtful tears.

I will be exploring death so sincere,

oblivious to what once life revered.

My epitaph inputted won’t be

that what I take underground.

A hollow echo swallowed down;

on a headstone as if some crown.

Verbiage will fall from some lips.

Such exchanges in talks I’ll miss.

I will suffer in final hours from

moments when I didn’t forgive.

Even to wear red it won’t phase,

as in my eternal rest I do lay,

a festive song and laugh filled day

that I pray will be on full display.

I’m no sad tale anyone can tell

so don’t bring somber dark veils.

Don’t look down as if into a well.

For life to be lived is more a hell.

Don’t let my grave be a sad place

where I’ll be eventually to be erased

by the exploding sun in outer space;

find bliss in song around my grave.
