AT MY FUNERAL  

At my funeral
Do not play a sad song
Play something sweet
And uplifting
Like "Everything is gonna be alright"
Do not dress in black
Wear white
Like an angel's garb
Do not weep
Because I will rise
Like a phoenix
To the blue yonder
Do not think of me
As the man six feet under
Look way up high
With the eyes of your faith
For I will be fluttering
Among the clouds
In timeless ecstasy

Beautifully Written!
A poem I can see bringing comfort to those burying loved ones. It seems better to celebrate the life lived than to mourn the life lost. Wonderful write!

Beautiful!
I wish that everyone could think of their own death this way! As a time of peace and of, if you so believe, moving on to a far better place.

Namaste,
Mike

Good thoughts
and very much what i would wish for too, it is only the shell that is in the ground ..the soul lives on and leaves reminders in the memories of others.
Fly high when the time comes... make your passing a celebration

Whimsical
Seriouspoet, it seems you would be happy with an Irish wake of the past. It is true that we would rather laugh than cry most times. Flying among the clouds seems more fun than being buried six feet under. I sensed some whimsy within your poem. ~ Sonia

My sentiments here.
A celebration of life, love and friendship. Should be a happy ocasion and not a sombre one. Well said. Thanks
