The Funeral Bell Is Tolling Poem by Francis Duggan

The Funeral Bell Is Tolling



The funeral bell i heard tolling today will one day toll for me
Someday in the future whenever that will be
Perhaps not the same bell but some bell for me will toll
And someone may even whisper God's mercy on his soul
The person the bell tolled for surely one not without a friend
He or she knew happy and sad days from the beginning to their life's journey's end
For Whom The Bell Tolls according to Hemingway it's relevance lives on
As a symbolic last farewell to the one to the forever gone
The funeral bell to those who do hear it serves as a reminder to all
That for each and everyone of us there is a final Fall
And time on us keeps on ticking and ticking away
It does never wait for anyone life ticks on as some do say
The funeral bell is tolling one day 'twill toll for me
For the longest life in time not long that's how it would seem to be.
