I Died Not

I Died Not

written by: Alo Ayodeji



Let there be no mournings,
I want to hear no dirges
When my body kisses the Earth.

Drop no tears on my lowered coffin
For I am not confined therein.

Were you not told
I have victory over death?
How then can I be subject to death?

Let the trumpets sound
And the drums play aloud.
Let the musicals withhold not
The performance they ought
To render at festivals in Rome,
For a soul that has gone home.

I want no condolences,
Only heartfelt congratulations
And joyous celebrations,
For I died not
I simply transcended
To the great beyond.
