Sing Your Own Song

by Kitty Cat Lady   Nov 1, 2017


Lay me down here
And put me to rest
I've had a good life
I've done my best
It matters not what
Happens after I'm gone
I'm not in my body now
I live in the song
The one that reminds you
Of me when it's played
That fills you with nostalgia
For those lovely days
Grieve in your own way
No one can judge you on how
It's a personal thing
No need to follow the crowd
Do whatever brings
Most comfort to you
I know that you loved me
The real me you knew
Celebrate my life
You are not alone
I live in your heart
Not on a gravestone.

    Beautiful moving poem that I can really relate to. My best friend passed away some years ago and she lives on in my heart. She lives on in her songs. Your poem touched my heart. Thank you.

    This is really beautiful, Kitty. We all have to go there. Truth is, when my gran died I have come to accept death as a beautiful thing...I believe in a life after death with the Lord and yes we should celebrate and remember the life of our departed. Well done.

    Kitty, I liked this a lot. Death is such a hard concept for everyone to deal with. I agree with your thoughts and wishes for after you are gone. I want my kids to throw a party and celebrate, laugh and tell stories. I will be gone but will always live on.
