Do not mourn the dead,
The dead are beyond the veil of pain and suffering of this life,
They are in the hereafter, with loved ones long since gone, or newly departed.
Do not weep for the dead,
Their time of tears and woe, have long since dried.
Weep for the living, they endure the throws of life.
Do not regret the dead,
Their time to regret has ended, they now live in the memories they made.
Regret for the living, we have to continue with the flow of our lives.
Rejoice for the dead,
The dead are with loved ones, they will never know fear or pain.
The living have to deal with death, disease and the horrors of life.
So, do not mourn the dead,
Mourn the living…
