les inevitablowe

We all come to go......................
The light vessel kicked about
and when the one saw light
out from the darkness
he cried and cried
as we all shared in joy
the one’s arrival.

For the rest of his life
he would cry and also smile
when we are on the exit route
upon his shoulders
he will share our burden
as we smiled
ere he arrived
now he will cry again
but for a wee while
and also smile

We lived for him all the while
let’s now smile
the journey is over
misery all relieved

we helped him to replace us
now we leave him
alone totally bereaved

He cries not for me
but hopes the sojourn
into our now natural home
in oblivion
miles any number of trillions
he will not cry

but say
these great folks
passed my way
so that on Earth
I enjoy
my lovely holiday
as I too will again go away
some day
one day
after a long innings
let me now say

into solace of silence
as all wait that spiritual day
lt has to come any day...
one day
the inevitable prayer way
the only one true gem poet
can say today...
