Beyond The Sea

Place me in a box,
keep me safe and warm,
make sure I can’t be found,
just put me six feet under ground-
without a headstone;
without eulogy;
without a sigh for recompense;
all I ask is for respect,
of this my final wish.

If it takes your fancy,
toss me overboard,
your boat has been a haven,
from this dying world-
as long as it is you;
as long as it takes,
place out in the deep,
you to make the final gesture,
to let me go, let me be,
beyond the sea.

By the time you get this,
all be said and done,
I hope you understand
from all the signs I left behind.
I know it’s not the best,
it could be a lot worse,
at least now we are free,
from all the pain, the hurt.
Goodbye my dearest friend,
I know we’ll meet again,
within the earth,
beyond the sea,
in memory and dream.
