I know this might seem like an extremely morbid post, but I love poetry, and I found a couple of really beautiful poems about death. I told my husband I would like one of these on my tombstone. :) Death doesn't really frighten me, so these to me are just beautiful sentiment.
No Funeral Gloom
by Ellen Terry
No funeral gloom, my dears
when I am gone,
black raiment, graveyard grimness.
Think of me as withdrawn
into the dimness,
Yours still, you mine.
Remember all the best of our
past moments and forget the rest,
And so to where I wait
come gently. on.
By Adelaide Love
If you should go before me, dear, walk slowly
Down the ways of death, well-worn and wide,
For I would want to over take you quickly
And seek the journey's ending by your side.
I would be so forlorn not to descry you
Down some shining high road when I came;
Walk slowly, dear, and often look behind you
And pause to hear if someone calls your name.
