Rondels are such a pain to write, anyway... this poem use the 'mystical' Himalayan land of Shangri-La (described in James Hilton's book 'Lost Horizon') as a metaphor for heaven. Following the passing of the persona, receiving his final wish to peacefully die and enjoy an afterlife. Please enjoy!

My Path to Shangri-La I yearn,
Ushering light beacons me so.
For this desire, I must forgo
This life and love that I have spurn.

Those left behind that wish to learn,
To why I leave my shell below.
My Path to Shangri-La I yearn,
Ushering light beacons me so.

No more do I wish or discern
In this world that I need now go
To this heaven’s mystical glow.
This new leaf I proceed to turn,
My Path to Shangri-La I yearn.
