Don’t spend much time in mourning. Tears are for the sad, I left to be with the Creator, And this should make you glad. Don’t vex yourself with questions, Or try to reason why life here for me has been ended, And it came my time to die. Don’t lose the love I gave you, Feed it with spiritual care, Grow it with devotion, And spread it everywhere. Don’t fret because my leaving came in such a way, We’ll have another meeting in God’s eternal day.
