Farewell Undue

Farewell Undue

A Poem by Filibustero Ibarra

"If I die young, bury me in satin, lay me down on a bed of roses, sink me in the river at dawn, send me away with the words of a love song..." ~ If I Die Young by the Band Perry


Alas, my love, my wick has grown crisp and dry

But if God could only grant me one wish to spend

That I could wipe that small tear from your sad eye

Weep no longer for me for I have not met the end

Woe is mine for Death has taken me without consent

But burden me not, my love, with such heavy despair

So I can find the peace promised by my heavenly ascent

Though I have found a place beside my Lord’s care

And to Heaven encompassed, I shall never leave you

Thus, do not bid me mournfully a farewell undue

I love that song! Haha. Well, anyway, this was well-written. And I really think you conveyed a really good message. If I were to die right now, I don't want my loved ones to mourn for my death, but I want them to think positively that I'm already in heaven with God. But of course I would also feel bad if they won't feel sad even just a little bit. :)) Thanks for sharing such a lovely write. ;)
