When I Die - Poem by Er.(Dr.) PRADEEP KUMAR MOHANTY

Do not lament when I die,
Its another way to say good bye.
On my journey to a better place.
Getting a signal from heavenly palace.
We all must cross this threshold,
My passing away- silently behold.
To a temple of learning I will soar,
That my soul has been craving forever.
You do not know the knowledge I will gain,
So do not lament on the occasion in vain.
Your lament shall make my path thorny,
So wish me good wishes for a happy journey.

    Dear pradeep;
    Very lucid, heartening and stiring.You have nicely depicted the silent journey of ours towards death.Death is not the end of life but the beginning of a new one. Please stay in touch.If time permits try my stuf.
