Always In Our Hearts

26 Aug

This 5-part triple rhyme poem is about death. Remember, when you do good works you never truly die. You will live on in the hearts of your loved ones, admirers, and your tangible works (books, poems, art, etc.). This poem is appropriate to be read at funerals. As is my custom, audio files to songs on GrooveShark.com linked where song titles appear.

“Always In Our Hearts”

The day you were born changed the course of history.
Now you have left us and you’re on that path shrouded in mystery.
Beloved, We Are Family and One Blood and you’re Another Part of Me.

We will always remember your smile and the melody of your laugh.
The way you taught us to hold up our heads even after we made a gaffe
and that life isn’t always predictable and at times things don’t add up like math.

A giant among ants and a bright Shining Star in the dark night sky.
This is more like a see you later because as believers, we know to Never Say Goodbye.
Your Love Will Always Be There and memories of you will never die.

We will share stories about you with the children and celebrate your life as you would want us to do.
You wouldn’t want us to be sad and stop living life to the fullest by crying all the time because Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue.
Like the P. Diddy and Faith sang about Biggie, I’ll Be Missing You.

Death is not about endings but rather it is about new starts.
Fallen but never forgotten as from among the world of the living your body departs.
We will remember and honor you because you’re with us in our memories and always in our hearts.

For Heaven or Hell?

14 Aug

I couldn’t resist adding the below irreverent rant by comedy legend, George Carlin, on this very topic. It makes you think.

Below is an 11-part haiku chain poem. I hope that you like it.

“For Heaven or Hell?”

Streets paved of gold and
pearly gates. Milk and honey.
Angel wings for all.

You will see loved ones
long lost. Reunified with
your spouse forever.

Make sure to go to
church each and every Sunday
to receive blessings.

The blessings for your
faithful attendance will be
mercy and goodness.

Don’t forget to go
to church or fail to pay your
tithes and offerings.

The salvation of
your soul is at stake. So guard
your duties, my friend.

GOD loves you, but he’ll
punish disobedience.
Hot fire and brimstone.

You will burn forever.
Eternal torment because
you are damned. No hope.

Hope has been lost. You
had your chance but you didn’t
heed warnings. Obey!

HE loves you, but will
throw you in the pit with that
devil, Lucifer.

So what is your life goal?
What are you aiming for? You
for Heaven or Hell?
