Death - Moving On - Poem by Lyn Paul

Death is not meant to be bad
Although incredibly sad
Even though I have gone
I now have moved on
And will remember the time that we had

    is this written by a dead person? i do not find death sad, in the traditional sense of sad. i do find
    a tear coming to the corner of an eye at rare times when i see a movie or read a book which moves me.
    But to have a 'loved one' die would not make me sad, in my experience.
    People will call me weird perhaps.
    that 's ok with me, long as they don't CALL ME 'late for supper'.

    i don't believe in an afterlife/life after 'death'. but if such a thing exists, i only want to remember enjoyable
    things. and a loved one may be included in that category.

    if this poem is part of your personal belief system, i hope your
    future experiences with death are all more enjoyable than sad.

    in the mean time: Eat, drink, and be merry! ! !

    many things are coming to mind... yes, death is a sad case but not if one has spent a life worth-living, if one lived for others more...death is bad only for those who lived for themselves...! ! ! (Report) Reply
