It May Not Be - Poem by Francis Duggan

It may not be in your Homeland that you will rest in peace
Not every Greek person is resting in Greece
Amongst Nature's bosom we are destined for to lay
From what is inevitable we cannot get away,
Only those who end their lives in suicide in their deaths have a say
Our life journey takes us back to Nature one day
The longest human life in time not a lengthy span
So enjoy your time and live for as long as you can,
Feel happy for each morning that you rise from your bed
Who knows who is next to be one of the dead?
The end of life's journey we all have to face
Though your Hometown may not be your final resting place
And since time it ticks on and for us does not wait
Our great gift of life we ought to celebrate.
