Just one pair of slippers, one set of robes
One picture of me with a smile adorned
A wee bit of cash, suffice for last rites
Await I in queue, at heavenly gates, outside
Time moves closer, the deeds must be right,
Finishing off my chores, keeping aches aside
Chains cannot break without a fight
Packing all your love, leaving hatred behind
Free from attachment, will hop to another world
Shall leave this strange world for another light
Final journey may end with a brisk good bye
Each moment now, a bonus day and night
Mourn not my death, it is but a waste
For I may never visit your obituary page
You may too wait behind, just don’t cut my line
There are no shortcuts, we all go when ripe.
But till we meet again in heaven or in hell
You may touch me a moment
Before a brief good bye
What’s on my mind:
Death is a reality, we should all be ready to go anytime. If we learn to live each day of our life as an extra bonus day, we learn to appreciate life. That is why it is important to keep our selves happy at all times because we live only once and every moment should be cherished.
Why do we feel so sad when the thought of going away from this world comes to our mind? Why are we afraid of death?
It is true that whenever we are in pain we want to end this pain. We want to be released from this pain journey, we lose our endurance and our tolerance. But when we see our near and dear ones, we change our minds. We don’t wish to go. We are terribly attached to this world. Attached not only to people but also to our things, to our materialistic possession even though we clearly know that we will take nothing with us, We don't need anything, but enough to last for one journey from this world to the next, only one pair of clothes to cover us and little money to bury us but still, we spend all our lives chasing the gold.
The main goal of our life is to find happiness and spread it. With happiness, we can add humor to our lives. That humor is the spirit that keeps us going. Those who don’t have sense of humor spend their life in self pity, becoming more and more miserable and in depression; all that one can think is the final goodbye….
