    When I die
    when my coffin
    is being taken out
    you must never think
    i am missing this world

    don’t shed any tears
    don’t lament or
    feel sorry
    i’m not falling
    into a monster’s abyss

    when you see
    my corpse is being carried
    don’t cry for my leaving
    i’m not leaving
    i’m arriving at eternal love

    when you leave me
    in the grave
    don’t say goodbye
    remember a grave is
    only a curtain
    for the paradise behind

    you’ll only see me
    descending into a grave
    now watch me rise
    how can there be an end
    when the sun sets or
    the moon goes down

    it looks like the end
    it seems like a sunset
    but in reality it is a dawn
    when the grave locks you up
    that is when your soul is freed

    have you ever seen
    a seed fallen to earth
    not rise with a new life
    why should you doubt the rise
    of a seed named human

    have you ever seen
    a bucket lowered into a well
    coming back empty
    why lament for a soul
    when it can come back
    like Joseph from the well

    when for the last time
    you close your mouth
    your words and soul
    will belong to the world of
    no place no time.
