Do Not Dance on my Grave
Tags: , , , ,

Preface:This is a fictional account of a grandfather wanting more for his grandchild.

 

Do not dance

On my grave

Little one...

Though many have;

and will...

 

They need you

To run

The flock

Down the hill

To paint a

painting

 

Dream on : persist

And in

Your Quest

Secure

A bearing

More than most;

A new route;

A different sight

Will grant

A maiden voyage

 

Set sail

to Sea;

And Look

Formore

than I've offered

Thee;

Don't give in

To arrogance

And sloth; no!

Trudge on

And the map

Is yours

It is hard to get back to the living once someone has died. But we all need to. I really like the poem.

I like the part about trudging on then the map is ours....I think to many people want things instantly,big house big car, cash etc.So a lot can be said for "trudging on" and mapping out a good path not only for ourselves but our future generation.Love this poem! Thanks Nat!-(also thanks for stopping by my journal-greatly appreciated!) Love Shauneen

With loving guidance to follow a humanitarian ethos we can all leave the best legacy for our children and their children to follow. I found this poem very moving.  Jeanie
