Final breath

When you take your final breath
and leave this ancient land
I hope you are respected, and someone will hold your hand.
I hope that you have travelled,
I hope that you have seen,
deserts, mountains, oceans, forests
and fields of green.
I hope you've seen the sun rise
and set in brilliant hues,
I hope you've had the frame of mind
to take in all the views.
I hope that you have noticed
the little things that count,
but most of all I hope that you found love
in large amounts.
