IF I WERE A GHOST
To be not anymore alive, not yet ready to touch the sky,
Wherever my spirit and soul must go, not ready to say goodbye.
If I were a ghost then what might my new world be like, some thoughts,
Faces and those whom I love I could see as they now can not until eternity see me.
Their words for me are heard as they know not that I am still around, I am here,
Not as I once was with body or identity but mind, spirit, and soul are together today.
Without the physical ability as once possessed my challenge of this new existence is now,
Remembering how I could pick things up and communicate seem now taken for granted.
If I were a ghost I would never again feel pain, no food would be needed to sustain,
Some good and some bad, a situation with feelings of sadness,
If I were a ghost I think it would be time to let myself go.
