Final Sleep

final sleep

I will die smiling
the ultimate letting go
no theories on what is next
for soon I will know.

When I die, if you weep
let your tears be for you
for I have lived my life well
and am ready for the final sleep.

    I liked this short verse made me think. When I cry for someone I love who has died truthfully the tears are selfish ones as I know how much they have meant to me and how much I will miss them. So though crying is a tad selfish it is also good isn’t it?

      Yes, grief is mostly about us, but why not? Our feelings are valid and truly our feeling sad honors a person who died. I would hate to think nobody missed me when I died. This idea that we are “selfish” when we grieve is one more example of things we accept without questioning their validity. hugs, pat
