When I Say My Final Farewell. A Sonnet by Manatita
Journey to Light
When I say my final farewell to this sleep of Life,
I will go to the enfolding arms of a Luminary,
Lovingly embracing me, with an incomparable Light.
When I leave the serene comfort of my sitting room,
I shall pull the curtains of my bedroom,
To enter the realm of dance and music.
The veil that separates the Beyond is but a tiny thread,
Delicate in its nurturing, and only a sacred moment away,
From this ephemeral shadow.
Rejoice! The Wings of Love on which I’ll ride,
Will one day eliminate our sorrows,
And augment our joys.
Come! Let us pull the moon down, steady our ship,
So its rays of luminance shine brightly in the Soul.

"Death is not the end. Death can never be the end.
Death is the road. Life is the traveller. The soul is the guide.
When the traveller is tired and exhausted, the guide instructs the traveller to take either a short or a long rest, and then again the traveller's journey begins..." -Sri Chinmoy.
