My Time of Ending *

My time of ending approaches,

This body I must depart

Remember me forever

Kept close within your heart.

Weep not for my leaving

For tears may blind your way

Shed burden of sorrow

Keep warm thoughts of me that day.

Though my form be but memory,

Time’s mist does it conceal.

My love for you eternal,

Strength forever real.

My pledge to be with you,

To dance in candle flame.

With spirit kiss upon your lips,

As you call out my name.

At end of day, when sleep calls out

Turn eye to northern light sky,

For there will I watch over you,

Loves sparkle in my eye.

  • Note: This is an epitaph for a friend some years ago.
