“Love, Death & Life
By Julie Gichuru
I pray that thee,
Do this honour for me… When I transcend this mortal coil,
Do not my body place in the soil.
My soul – already homeward bound,
Need not be trapped in earthly ground.
Premonition? Listen to Mowzey Radio’s message before he passed away
In loincloth wrap my human form,
For I myself, will long be gone.
With thanks and praise,
My earthly being please set alight,
With fire bright,
Into the night;
With thanks and praise,
Before my Makers sight.
And on the Indian Ocean seas,
My ashes scatter to the breeze,
Wild and free,
Across the lands of my ancestries.
When I transcend this life of toil,
When I shuffle off this mortal coil,
My spirit free, adventure-bound,
Will with my maker, be homeward found.”
