Cannot Worry - Poem by Francis Duggan

Cannot worry where my last remains are destined to lay
Or if they are cremated when i have lived my last day
Any worries i have had will be no more
I have had a good innings of ten years with three score
I have traveled a bit some of Nature's wonders did see
Though many have seen more of the World than me
It will not affect me post my last night and day
If people unkind or kind things of me do say
I will be past joy and worry, sadness and fear
On my passing i would not wish anyone for to shed a tear
When the last breath of life from my body has gone
The wild birds will sing and life will go on
I just wish to live for as long as i can
And hopefully die without pain as a very old man.
