I Passed Away Today

Poem by Patricia Bradford

The World I said passed away today,
But I had really died along the way.
Prejudice, hate, jealousy, pain
Was not something I could explain.
I wanted love, joy, peace,
And all the wars to cease. I loved my world, strange as it may seem,
For I was born there to dream.
Love, laughter, sunshine, snow
Intelligence, wisdom and knowledge of God,
Was all I wanted to know.
But after I am gone, the world will grow and grow.
