Last Request

I have no fear of dying,
The natural complement of living.
 
My only request…
I implore…
To whom ever has that
Ending task…please
Do not put my cold
body in a box in the ground
 
Return me to dust and ash
as it was meant to be
 
Spread me to the four winds
Allowing me to fly to 
those beloved places 
of my life
 
Floating on the 
sparkling blue water
of the ocean
 
Filtering through the 
air into primeval 
forests of pine
 
Mixing with the snows
of the Appalachians
where people I love
have lived
 
Let the updrafts carry
me across the Atlantic
Returning me to my 
Heritage – becoming one
again with the green of Ireland,
the Highlands of Scotland
And…
the Standing Stones of
Wales and England
 
Let me go willingly…
Honor my wishes
Allow me to become
once again a part
of all that is and was
ME…

By Way of Silence

So many things
sneak into our
lives and we
never know
 
They tiptoe in
Silently…
Unobserved…
Unknown…
 
Until —
It is much too late
 
The thief in 
the Night
Stealing …
Hearts…
Souls…
Lives…
 
Our best and
Brightest
All unaware 
until it is too
late to fight
 
Too many lives
Lost…
Too many families
Ruined…
Too many people
Caught unaware…
 
Death and Dying
makes its way
in —
By way of Silence
until it is too late
