“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.
