If Am Gone Cry Not - Poem by amos nyakundi

If I should ever leave you,
Whom I love
To go along the silent way,
Grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears.

But laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you there
For I will come-I'll come!
Would I not find a way,
Were tears and grief not be barriers?

And when you hear a song or see a bird I loved,
Please do not let your thoughts of me be sad.
For I am loving you just as I always have...
You who were so good to me!

There are so many thing I wanted still to do-
So many things to say to you...
Remember, please, that I did not fear death.
It was just leaving you that was so hard to face.

You cannot see beyond this life
But this you know... I loved you so
Never doubt that I am with you still!
For love does not die with the body
And nothing in heaven or on earth
Can keep apart those who love.

Be good to me as you were...
let me lean on your shoulders,
lets laugh together like before,
please, please dont cry for me please,
Am with you now and i will be
