I Shall Not Altogether Die

Title Quote: Horace

I Am a Being of Light and Love
Sent to this Earth from above
My true self is a Spirit, so high
I Shall Not Altogether Die

I am a part of the Infinite Whole
The Light of God contained in my Soul
I remember this, whatever I try
I Shall Not Altogether Die

No matter which path in life I choose
I will succeed, I never lose
Lessons are learned, even from a lie
I Shall Not Altogether Die

I came here to always do my best
Sometimes it seems life is a test
But it matters not if I laugh, or cry
I Shall Not Altogether Die

Love and joy are my goals, while I’m here
Following my intuition, it becomes so clear
These are the treasures, so in Bliss, I sigh
I Shall Not Altogether Die

Loved ones leave, as I know they must
Although I grieve, with faith I trust
Our Love will unite us, that is why
I Shall Not Altogether Die

One day my body will cease to be
But I know that’s not the end of me
I’ll be Aware when my passing is nigh
I Shall Not Altogether Die

My Soul will journey on, and on
Through many lives, and bodies I’ll don
My Spirit growing as the times go by
I Shall Not Altogether Die


About This Poem

One of my all-time favourite quotes is: You are not a human on a Spiritual journey. You are a Spirit on a human journey. (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin) so this is something I do my best to convey in many of my poems. 

I have no doubt what-so-ever that we survive death. In the past I have had many messages through different mediums that were either unusual knowledge of myself or members of my family, or, I was given advice that would have a dramatic affect on my life. I no longer go to Spiritualist Church for various reasons, but I am grateful for all the messages and knowledge I gained over the time that I did. 

‘Sympathy’ poems are something I am drawn to and love to write. Death is a large part of life but is not talked about by so many people, it is also mostly considered to be a feared and extremely sad event. My wish with my poems is to bring this topic to everyone, not just to those who are grieving, and to shed light and cheerful acceptance on dying.. for we will all go through it ourselves one day!
