A Wish - Poem by C. P. Sharma

As stream of consciousness
Changes the course,
Its infinite dimensions arise,
When we rise above this body,
Only then, this truth we can realize.

So, you should know it well,
I am not going to die.
When I depart from the body,
In a new dimension I shall rise.

Call not the people from far away,
Let not there be any hue and cry.
I am immortal, I cannot die;
A simple funeral you should try.

Waste not the time in wailing and waiting,
A peaceful departure I would wish,
My blessings shall be with you, my dear,
You should always in life flourish.

    An extremely thoughtful commentary on the last stages of a man's life and after life. You have put it very beautifully. Let us look at the following lines: I am immortal, I cannot die / A simple funeral you should try / A peaceful departure I would wish (Report)Reply

    An enlightening piece.
    How an ageing soul wishes the world and the people
    around him to go on, once he is gone?
    Very nice.

    As stream of consciousness
    Changes the course,
    Its infinite dimensions arise,

    and the way it will go will depend to our deeds
