When You Think Of Me - Poem by Kimberly Hilliker

The time has come for me to go
It’s time now to move on
‘Tis the end of watching sunsets
And seeing morning’s dawn.
Don’t shed tears on my depart
Or mourn the death that’s mine
Just merrily please celebrate
With eat and drink and wine
You and I shall meet again
At another time and place
And our union will be marked
By a familiar smiling face
When you speak of me until then
Don’t glorify my name
Rather yet be honest
And keep my memory the same
As for now what you must do
Is keep on keeping on
Without dwelling upon the reasons
As to why it is I’m gone
Crying, mourning and dwelling
You see are so mundane
And only prevent my departure
From this material plane
So here I humbly ask
That you let my spirit to go free
By simply smiling inwardly
At the times you think of me
