Live Your Life Till You Can

(A Personal Obituary)

 

 

Coming as a whiny weakling; going as a wily wakening

Living as a shining light; dying as a winding flight

Talking as a skillful scholar; listening as a sinful extoller

Waking as a joyful dream; sleeping as a struggling stream

Breathing as a raging fire; lying as an aging lyre

 

Here lived a man of desire; here rested a bone in pyre

Here walked a flesh of gold; here stayed a speck too old

Here stood a heart of ire; here laid a tomb of spire

Here flew a bird of wings; here landed a shred of strings

Here ruled a king of power; here crept a thing of hour

 

Farewell to glowing sun; farewell to growing fun

Farewell to rusty Earth; farewell to dusty hearth

Farewell to hovering sky; farewell to recovering eye

Farewell to those I love; farewell to those I shove

 

My days are gone; my light is blown

My heart is stopped; my life is cropped

I lie in coffin in front of you

To pay my regards to all of you

 

Live your life till you can

Before you are taken away from the clan
