Bye The Sea - Poem by AHO Speaks
When I die bury me near the sea
Cast my body upon the water to thee
Allow me to rest in the darkness of the deep
To renew my soul after a short quiet sleep.
That I will always be bathed by God's daughter
To be softly enfolded by the holy water
Tho I ask for much I will ask for more
An eternal gratitude for the earthly chore.
Sanction my tenure according to your will
That the motion of your water never remain still
To reach out and touch the seed of your treasure
Your living creations that always give pleasure.
To look up with a view from a different direction
Never again to feel the hurt of rejection
That my continuity will always take place
With my sisters and brothers, regardless of face.
Thank you my God for the quick release
For my moments of life into the eternal peace
As I have said before; I offer my final fond adieu
My God, my God; 'I truly do love, only you.
