A Warriors Burial

Updated on May 26, 2017

Bury me at sea

The turbulent waves it's salty scent

Is where my body needs to rest in final slumber...

A Moors burial to be sure

Encase me in sheets of light and blue or green


lift my face to catch the sun,

and set me adrift

Decorate my hands and feet with wildflowers of lavender blue and

My hair, adorn with salient white.

At my feet a sunflower, the biggest and brightest of it's kind

bury me with all earthly things in which I found hours of pleasure.

Long stem roses and daffodils do bring to the water's edge

And as my vessel sails out to sea,

toss them out to sea for me.

So I shall forever be enclosed by the sweet smell of nature
