In The End

My body is placed on the pyre
Releasing my soul to the wind
Sacrificed unto the fire
That's where my next life begins

I soar up into the heavens
Like the smoke that rises above
My wings are that of the Phoenix
My soul is that of a dove

I don't feel the pain of my sorrow
In fact, I'm feeling relieved
No-one could ever imagine
The joy that I have received

You can cry your tears of rememberance
But keep persuing your dreams
We'll meet again at your hour
Where the willow touches the stream


Rockman   :-)

    Just a comment about your comment below. Sometimes I write the last line of a poem before I ever find verses to fit. Apparently I'm fine with endings. I enjoyed this very unique expression

    Thanks Ilene. I wrote this poem but never finished it because I couldn't come up with an end. My notebook laid at my feet for about 4 or 5 days while I typed on the computer. I kept glancing at it wondering how to end it. Then in a flash it came to me. I wonder if you and other writers go through that. Thanks for reading. Rockman
