I felt myself floating as my soul took flight,
I drifted upward on a current of light.
I could feel my soul begin to expand and grow.
I began to see those who had passed long ago.
I was filled with a love so soft and sweet.
There were so many friends and family to greet!
I saw Grandpa and Grandma and Mom and Dad.
Their love was an experience I once had.
As I floated upward I could feel the grief,
Of my earth bound family who were in disbelief.
They were sad as they stood by my lifeless form.
They felt a great loss and they felt forlorn.
I knew my belief would conquer death.
Which is why I let go of my last breath!
As my spirit lifted, my body turned cold.
I was going to a place where I would no longer be old.
Goodbye, farewell, I will see you again!
Because, when this life ceases, it is NOT THE END!
