Poem Titled "If I Die Young" ( Excerpt) by 1du547(m): 1:48pm On Aug 27, 2022
If I die young,

Raise me in the sky at dusk and let the wheels  of time judge my right and wrong 

 Let the cool evening breeze grease my soul when the sun goes down 

Let the stars crystal the tears of loved ones and ease their frown 

Beckon on the retiring evening birds to gather around me and play their melodies

Reminisce our moments of serenity and forever inscribe on your hearts our memories

Kiss the lovely thoughts of our beautiful days when we dined together

Shed a tear upon my corpse and promise of our smiling days to remember

Let the fire flies of the night light up every inch of my graveside

Smile and ease the pain and do not dwell persistently on the wind of the yestertide 


If I die young,

Encircle me and bid me forever goodbye with a warm song 

Stand in the mountainous regions and declare me free from nature's plight

You all chant around in circles and declare the end of a long night...
