The Final Farewell Sonnet

As my foot prints on the earth fade away on this final day

I want to say a fond farewell

No need to whisper anymore, for I will not hear you

No need to think I will come, as you will not see me

I ask you to be grateful for the memories we shared

Understand now my path way in life has been walked

Every stone unturned, every thought cogitated

Now my legacy is all that will remain

On this last farewell; I ask you to do what I cannot

With compassion, understand me for not saying the words I should have said to you

Find acceptance in your heart and mind using whatever reasoning it will take


I must go now to my final destination

Open hands await me in far distant lands

The Garden of “forget me not”

Verona Pentony is a poet with a purpose. Her mission is one of peace. Motivated, from an early age, by an ambition to meet people from all walks of life, her mission has taken her to many places and has achieved recognition and reciprocation in some far-flung quarters of the world. A Song for Forgiveness (from her debut collection, Reflections from the Heart, part of the Reflections series) was recorded in Nashville in July 2021, Tennessee by singer, Katy Lynn Johnson: Take the train to Forgiveness County; Everyone has a heartache to mend. Learning the lessons all of us must one day see. Making the enemy into your friend. “All Missions begin as thoughts, embryos of an idea that grow into a visualised result,” says Verona. For her, it began on 18 December 2003, when she received the guiding sign to promote World Peace and Forgiveness. Thus began her distribution of The White Rose of Peace Card during the Iraq War.
