I sit under the sun coming from the East,
but will never again. It goes over the mountains
out West, so I lay back on a mountain rock
to easily see
the darkening sky that’ll soon be
filled with sparkling stars,
lighting the night, and soon
moon beams will be sent
to make my night bright.
What a beautiful scene, and though it’s
the last I’ll ever see, happiness fills me,
because I’ve been alive and allowed to
enjoy so many natural things.
Stars, sun and moon are only a few
of the wonders I’ve seen.
I watched babies born, flowers grow
girls transformed into women and have
even loved a few,
These are answers I give when asked why,
why do we even exist? Are we here to fill
a void or to satisfy a whim of someone or
something far greater than we?
To live, to enjoy, to be worry free while
appreciating the show going on around us.
We may never live again, but stop to think
my friend, of the opportunity freely given us
to participate in marvels filling our world.
Imagine if you can, never having seen a river,
waterfall, or the sun or moon with stars sprinkling
light throughout the sky.
Or watched people give love, kindness and hope to
those less fortunate than them and share affection
with dogs and cats and horses and more. Imagine if
you exist for eternity and have only heard, but never seen?
That’s why I’ve pinned this note to my chest for you to read.
I’m sorry it had to be you that found me laying here on a
beautiful rock that I laid on to die. But now that the best
part of me is gone,
I beseech you to bury what remains right here where
I laid under the sky to watch the sun go down, and the
moon rise amongst the stars, the perfect time and
place to die. So you see my friend, I’m happy now!
