I beg of you……. do not pray for those who are already gone
Theirs is a journey already done
For they hover above where we stand
And others below our moving feet
I beg of you……. do not cry prolonged tears for those who are gone
If you do let them be incessant tears of joy
Or a praise,
Or a tear,
Just for their fondness sake.
Pray instead for those who still walk the earth…. the living and unfulfilled
We still have so much to give
From me to you,
And you to me,
If there be words of gladness, deeds of goodness
We owe to mankind…..
We owe it to ourselves
To give these goodness
For those who we “Rest in peace”
May never really be at peace
And when they breathed the very air and lived the challenging life
We did not give to them, the soothing hopes
Like God would have wanted us to.
So I beg of you……do give brighter hope to those
Still living, they are our real hope
And we need to continue the good deeds
For those who lie six feet have fate already sealed
And it’s for theirs and our very own misdeeds.
