the finale

the final sojourn

I have in my WILL endorsed

my bier should have four parachutes
one at each end
lest I decide on the earth to descend
yet once again
as I'd not know
how the world will toil
without my poetry
tilled from my mind's soil

albeit no one may listen to me
try to abandon the aircraft
shall remain a desire so carefree
ere the final destination of the sojourn
at the far end of never ending space
I hope to move on


now you add on..
the place of RV

Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


When your soul has left for pastures new
Parachutes will be no good to you.
There will be such a soggy plop
Loved's old body thrown from atop
Where the clouds will breathe in the air
Opening those parachutes there.

Lets not waste the silken shrouds
We could have just thrown you from the clouds
Watching you plummet to the world below
Hoping that in the sea you would fall
Just a splash then nothing more.

Loved why do you worry on how you go
That on dying how you leave the world so
It will not be for you to choose the route you will take
Can I fly the aircraft of your wake??
I shall twist and dive as if you were alive.

Then reality will sink in.
Our Dear Loved wont feel a thing.
La, La Yours Sparrow who always flies free
I will remember you, if you remember me.
Please join me in that land called eternity..

One of you silly pieces and it will not help anyone learn to write or prepare to journey on if you make so light of these things.
I shall take to myself a period of mourning of one year should you go before,,
Hey not a good write but we will keep your works in my sight..
Go well young Bard and I await some of your better works, so that my replies can be thought out more, Yours Ian.T He He

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
