A poem about leaving this life.


The Journey Of Farewell

When my ship sails

away from this shore

into the sea of nevermore,

I won’t be sad and I won’t look back,

I’ll just think of the dreams that I once had.


Drifting away from the shadows,

and into the light,

what a glorious moment I've found

for my lost soul to take flight.


I’m carried away on a sweet lullaby

knowing it’s time for me to say goodbye,

I wave at the moon that hangs silver in the air,

and wish the world well,

even though I’m not there.


Then I’m gone,

no more then whispers in the breeze,

telling you not to be upset,

that this was my moment to leave.

There are certain things, which are likeable because of it's grammer, words or content..and some because they simply touches your heart...your's writting classifies in second catagory..
