Born 1955 Died 20XX
I’m not asleep, I’m not at rest,
I don’t await you with the bless’d,
Or burn in hades with the rest.
I’m not now ash or rotting gore,
We won’t re-meet on a distant shore,
For I have no soul. I am no more.
I’m not in you, nor in the air,
Not in sweet bliss, nor dark despair,
In truth I am not anywhere.
Not passed beyond, not gone ahead,
Farewell dear friends, that’s it, I’m dead.
