Dust - Poem by James L Comerford

They carried his dust down to the sea
A man who lived a simple life
Did no wrong never beat his wife
when life came to end he did not complain
just jumped aboard our lords train
And his dust was cast upon the sea
No tears were shed he did not want
Just his dust cast to the sea

    that touches to the bones! If one was contented of his life he led on earth, he could die that peacefully. Upon birth, ppl have had smiles upon their faces, upon death, we hope for the same...as tears will make ur travel a burden instead of joining the Creator with utter peace and acceptance. Easier said than done but it could happen....if they read this poem (lol, just kidding) Nice poem, and again I admire ur way of words. (Report)Reply
