A Day Will Come
A day will come when I will die,
I won't want you to sit and cry.
I want instead from all, a smile,
Ignore the fixed funeral style.
Don't speak of heaven or of god,
I've always thought them rather odd.
Don't enter the church, go outside,
To the place, where I will now reside.
Funerals are always taxing,
I'd rather you be relaxing.
So don't let grief stand in your way,
Please, if only for this one day.
Rejoice for my life, not death,
I loved you all with every breath.
One For My Parents
My mum taught me how to read and write,
She showed me how to love and live.
My father taught me my wrong from right,
He showed me how to hope and give.
I think myself lucky to have them both,
Within my life and within my heart.
They have been there for my entire growth,
They will be there till the day we part.
