When the dust reclaims us theres no more need to fuss...

"AFTERLIFE MEMOIR"

When I die just creamate me and toss my ashes into the sea

no need for a fancy casket covered with fiber glass

just a moment of silence is all I ask

no need for a large ceremony, pot luck or a wake

just gather together over coffee and cake

noone understood why when I closed my eyes

there was a smile on my face, thats because thank God after all this time I'm finally leaving this place

I didn't have to open my eyes to another day, the years of struggle just faded away

no more worries about cooking meals, paying bills, pressing clothes or automobiles

coming up with extra money to get my hair, fried, died and laid to the side, no more concerns if I'm appreciated, afterall we know that emotion is over rated

no more fighting battles on stolen ground, today everybody gets to just stand around, no more falsified friendships that play out when your monies all gone, for the first time in their lives their on their own

no need for wasting precious moments grieving over me, I'm resting on my own cloud until the day of jubilee

so when the wind shfits and the ashes are scattered, all that this life stole won't even matter

      This is very beautiful. My sentiments to a tee. Just ride your bicycle or "JUST GATHER AROUND TOGETHER OVER COFFEE & CAKE." Maybe espresso.
