Just Before I Die

Updated on June 3, 2012


I wish to see the sun rise in paradise

And feel its yellow vibrant light mellow my face

I wish to walk down an isle of ice

And feel the cold tickle my toes

I wish to stroll in the rain up the hills

Let ma’hself forget all my sorrows

I wish to speak with the winds flying by

I wish to live a little

Just before I die



I wish to see the beauty nature beholds

The secrets deep within… it slowly unfolds

I wish feel the drizzle on my cheek

As I relax and let it all go meek

I wish to scamper in the fresh dewed grass

When the sun is at dusk, like a shining bowl of brass

I wish to stand and see time flying by

I wish to live a little

Just before I die




I wish to dream about people I love

Not work and load and chores

I wish to sit and taste my meal

Not gobble, gorge all in haste… with no zeal

I wish to do at least one thing I like

Not please the world and still get spike

I wish to see myself in the sky

I wish to live a little just before I die




For all the hatred and lust in the world

I wish peace, friendship, and love to unfold

For all this worldly feud for gold

I wish thy brotherhood to grow more bold

For all the strife and bereft from love

I wish they don’t fret but hope for good

For there is one life one soul and time… is less

I wish to see life breathe in me

For there is loneliness as life goes by

I wish to live a little

Just before I die

      my gurujee was once asked what the purpose of life was and he replied:"the purpose of life is life itself"

      your poem echoes the same sentiment. voted up

      I think this is one of my favorites of yours so far. We all need to remember this because it really is important to live before you die! When I die... I want to slide in saying that was one heck of a ride. Beautiful words as usual. And this definately put a smile on my face!

      thank you ananceleste for your kind comment. In the present day world we people have forgotten to live amidst so much to do and so much to bear.

      Good poem, however since we don't die, just return to the dimension we originated from, this life is just about learning and living the human experience.

      What would be the point of knowing the truth before we lived the human experience?

      Acceptance is the truth of discovery, we are all immortal and chose to come here to learn , so when we are born we are given a clean slate.

      Death is not a destination, just a stop along the way. Humans have had this knowledge conditioned out of them and have grown to fear death.
