Farewell by Kahlil Gibran

Behold, I have reached the peak of the mountain and my spirit has taken flight in the heavens of freedom and liberation.

I have gone far, far away, O children of my mother, the hills beyond the mists are now hidden from my view, the last traces of the valleys have been flooded by the ocean of serenity, and the paths and trails have been erased by the hand of oblivion. The meadows, forests, and mountain passes are masked by phantasms that are white as spring clouds, yellow as sunbeams, and red as dusk's sash.

The roar of ocean waves has faded, the purling of brooks in the fields has ceased, the voices of the crowd have dissipated, and I no longer hear anything but the anthem of eternity, which harmonizes with the desires of the spirit.

~Kahlil Gibran

"When we appreciate our diversity, we have abundance!"
Thank you Everyone.
*******************

Do not cover my breast with your moans and sighs. Rather, trace upon it with your fingertips the runes of love and the emblems of joy.
Do not disturb the repose of the ether with rites and incantations. Rather, call upon hearts to sing praises with me of immortality and eternity.
Wear not black out of sorrow for me but, rather,put on white, rejoicing with me.
Speak not of my death with a lump in your throat. Rather, close your eyes and you will see me among you, now, tomorrow, and thereafter.

~Kahlil Gibran
'I shall live beyond death, and I shall sing in your ears
Even after the vast sea-wave carries me back
To the vast sea-depth.
I shall sit at your board though without a body,
And I shall go with you to your fields, a spirit invisible.
I shall come to you at your fireside, a guest unseen.
Death changes nothing but the mask that covers our faces.
The woodsman shall be still a woodsman,
The ploughman, a ploughman,
And he who sang his song to the wind shall sing it also to the moving spheres.'
