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

(Pause)

I must go now to my final destination

Open hands await me in far distant lands

The Garden of “forget me not”
