When I Die... - Poem by Joshua Fegley

When I die...
let my body burn.
Deposit my ashes,
inside my sepulchral urn.

Taken to the riparian of forlorn;
on the littorals so adorn.
As the wind will turn,
open my urn.

Let me be,
and set me free.
Let me fly,
when I die...

    not bad but i'm not sure about some of the words like sepulchral urn, it kind of sounds a bit dated but nevertheless it's alright. (Report)Reply

    That was really good.

    .: : .Death drives people
    To do the impossible
    To talk to those
    Who can’t respond
    To cry over one
    Who cannot comfort
    To leave behind
    The life they knew.: : .
