Daily Prompts- My obituary

Cast adrift on a moonless night

The ship sails on sea that is calm

Seeking quiet and solitude I stand here

Thinking how my life is dependent

On those who are a constant in my world


One day I was not here anymore

Would my obituary be read with sadness

Or with a feeling of relief

Would I like them to be sad, missing me

Or will I leave them relieved, secretly happy

I think the best legacy I can leave behind

Would be a score of kind deeds

That will make them remember me with love

And be glad for the fact that they knew me

In response to the following prompts;




Moonless, Crisp, Quiet



Word of the day Challenge;

  1. I agree with your thoughts. I’ve already told my girls to throw a party. Like a stereotypical Irish Wake, drinking, dancing, music, laughter, stories…maybe a few tears. I want to be remembered with joy because that’s how I try to live.

  2. Well! I guess this where most of our thoughts are going these days. It’s a bit on the morbid side, but death does come to us all – although this bloody virus is hastening that day considerably for some. I like what you did with the word prompt – morbid or not! LOL Keep’em coming, Sadje.

    1. Thanks Carol. The prompt was obituary so there was little choice. But I’ve thought about this a lot. I wish to be the person who’s death would not be considered a blessing. If I am making some sense.

  3. Questions that are bound to come to light now. Personally I want a party when I am gone. They can either share a laugh over a happy time or laugh cause I’m gone… either way it is a happy occasion. Great post!
