I Bid Thee All Farewell

Written by: Casey Strong

I bid thee all farewell.
Please your tears, for me, do not expel.
I cherish all your adoring presents;
At my last push-off it warms my icy essences. 
If the overwhelming urge arrives
Please do not rise.
Hopefully this doesn’t brew hate,
No eyes should behold my present state.
Now I must lay my head
Beneath the ground you now tread.
To heart take my words said
Because I’m to now lay eternally in this bed.
