One at Rest
by Author Unknown

“Think of me as one at rest,
For me you should not weep,
I have no pain, no troubled thoughts,
For I am just asleep.

The living thinking me that was,
Is now forever still.
And life goes on without me
As time forever will.

If your heart is heavy now
Because I’ve gone away,
Dwell not long upon it, friend,
For none of us can stay.

Those of you who liked me
I sincerely thank you all,
And those of you who loved me
I thank you most of all.

The answer to life’s riddle
In life I never knew,
I go with hope that now I will,
And even so will you.

Oh, foolish, foolish me that was,
I who was so small,
To have wondered, even worried,
At the mystery of it all.

And in my fleeting lifespan
As time went rushing by,
I found some time to hesitate,
To laugh, to love, to cry.

Matters it now if time began,
If time will ever cease?
I was here, I used it all,
And now I am at peace. “
