The After Life - Poem by Melanie Candy

When life no longer wants to scream you name
When all the pain and suffering comes to its end
When your old life has taken its last breath
And your new life begins as you begin to walk
Walk with him down that bright white lane

Please listen, as this must be stressed
Please be happy do not be sad
For my life wasn’t taken in vain
For now my new life has begun
For god has taken me and now I have been blessed

As I enter his garden no pain do I feel
No drip no morphine I’m finally at ease
For I feel free, free again to run free
And now I can feel the freshness of the kind soft breeze
And the real true feel of the grass at my heel

No aid do I need to stand on my feet
No aid do I need to help me to breathe
No aid do I need to dress and to bathe
For I am free to roam how and where I feel
Free from the pain which I have now beat

My only regret is that I leave you behind
But remember one day we shall re-meet
For I will be awaiting for you with my arms open wide
When he hands you to me up at his gate
For nothing will be lost for as we greet
We can reminisce and memories we can rewind

But please do not fret
As you have a long time to live
But when it is you time do not be scared
For there is no pain and all is so true
And this is the best life the best life yet.
