DEATH and BEYOND, a sonnet

Let easy death be my painless surprise
In deepest sleep with an exciting dream
My expression locked in a look so wise
Even so I am sure my wife will scream
Will I be hovering above the deathbed
Listening to what those who gather said
What a wonderfully good man he was

If there is a godly judge awaiting
My hope is that the good outweighed the bad
The scales are worth extant contemplating
If I wait too long I may end up sad
Once I cross River Styx no returning
Maybe I will be in heaven and glad
Otherwise this body may be burning

(This sonnet was written in January, 2017)
