"Even Castles made of sand, fall into the sea, eventually."-Jimi Hendrix
"I used to live in a room full of mirrors; all I could see was me. I take my spirit and I crash my mirrors, now the whole world is here for me to see."- Jimi Hendrix

As I fall,
Please remember,
Life has been good,
And it couldn’t have gotten any better.

As I plunge into this abyss,
Don’t worry, don’t fret,
Because I have lived my life,
And you aren’t done yet.

You have a lot to live,
To love, to see, and to be,
To see you grow,
Has made my eternity.

But as I am laying here,
Plug still in the wall,
Please listen to what I have to say,
Please answer my final call.

Because when you fall,
Into this uncertain depth,
I will be there to catch you,
Please don’t fear death.

As I fall,
Please understand,
I have had my fill,
And I am giving the reaper my hand.

As I fall,
I see your light,
Getting closer,
Blinding my sight.

As I fall,
I realized,
It wasn’t a fall,
But my own rise.

After all,
What is a descent,
That lets me be at peace,
with the water so clear,
And the endless feasts.

As I fall,
Please remember,
Life has been good,
But it’s just about to get better.

The author's comments:
The idea of this poem just came to me. It is about a dying father giving his son final farewells. The meaning of this poem is that, contrary to popular belief, life and death are peaceful, the transition is the only complication.
