Circle of life

My Nanny past away a few days ago and a friend told me that it is the circle of life.
Though it is sad but it have to happen.

Circle of life

The circle of life is a painful one
But I suppose is has to be that way
so our world doesn't get to full
and new life can start again.

why choose the ones we love?
The nice, non reliant people
The ones that worked all their life
and owe nothing to no one?
It's just so unfair.

Who choose the ones that
have had their time,
The ones that have to say goodbye
to the world and lay in a cold coffin,
full of silk?

The body that lays there
is just the shell, the spirit has left,
moved onto the next world
For a better, peaceful life,
to wait for their loved ones,
to be returned to them,
A life they can enjoy forever more
with lots of laughter and joy,
No anger or tears to be shred
Just a nice peaceful happy world
to enjoy.

The circle of life is a horrible one
but it has to be done.

When my time is to come,
I want no tears to be shred,
No hymns to be sung,
Amazing grace can be played,
with some Hinder, Bon Jovi and headhunterz too
Jeans are to be worn, with purple
or lilac tops with trainers on peoples feet.

Purple and lilac flowers in some vase’s
But not upon my grave, cos there will not be one
I want to be buried in a forest or a wood,
with the birds singing, and the sunlight shining down.
People laughing and joking remembering me,
with a big party in the evening light.
people getting drunk making a fool of themselves
and just having fun!
No tears are to be shred no sorrow is to be felt
Just have fun on my day of my
Circle of life.

that sounds like a nice funeral to attend to. (not that i'm anticipating 'your time'. hahaXD) i wish i knew how i'd like my funeral to be. maybe at the back of my head i'm thinking that it's too early for that, but one never really knows.

Krrymarie, I am so sorry your loved one passed on. It is never easy and my heart goes out to you.
When I pass it is already written down what to do with my body. No grave, no cremation. I want to donate my body for the research of Chronic myofascial pain. If they will have me.LOL
If not then, I told my hubby to cremate me and put me in a mason jar, bury me by my dogs in the backyard.
Once again, I am so sorry about your loss.
Thank you for sharing.:)

Thank you for your kind words,
It is hard to know what to do with your body when you pass over. I dont think they would have mine for research or anything else!
I have said I wanted to be mummified and then stood in a corner of my sons house ( when he gets one) pointing at him haha!!

I would have wanted to be laid out so birds could eat my body, but that is illegal. Anyhow , as with the others, sorry for your loss, I too am not ready to die yet.
Mummified would be funny.
