like he had stood

Like he stood

I stand at the cross roads of life...
wondering which path to take...
knowing little...
both lead to the same destination of salvation...
one from East to West
the other the other way round...
at best...
twas best my salvation did rest
my mind merged with the universe
and my soul did greet
the magnetism had gone,
laid to rest
all were left bereft,
I took to wings,
eternity said come unto me
twill be your last sojourn
ere you were born
but now you will never be forlorn
all born will follow
sooner than later

universe beckoned me
I said just stand by for a while
let me take leave,
why let others simply grieve
then both universe and eternity agreed
stay if you please

Euthanasia will be coming...

These are the ones we wait for from you.
A pleasure to read and feel the ways you have.
Dwell not on the choice of which road to take.
You have always known before you stopped here which way to go.
The map as if it had been Googled, is there in your memory.
Travel on with unconditional love and a lightness in your step.
There are many that travel with you and whisper your name,
Yours Ian.

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

Jess has already granted poetic justice
a gem is found one in a million
at times a trillion
there is yet to equivalent to the Kohinoor
which THE Queen dons
from a country called India
and there is no QUEEN like her
that I know of
