[Farewell]

Thy beloved souls now flourish in divine
heavens bosom at thy destine fate.
For I know that thy all glancing down upon
us that thou hath loved.
There's smiles of bliss on thy faces as thou lively
await behind that beautiful pearly gate.

'Tis so difficult as I pay my due respects
& sincerely say my earthly good byes.
Internally mixed & blue which are ye emotional dyes.
Externally a mere moment tears of disbeliefe,
grief, yet glee begin to exit my moistened brown eyes.

A piece of myself also dies,
but what will forever reside in my dearest,
loving heart & soul are ye
indivisible Kinfolk & Peerships most closely of all ties.
