Death poems have also been referred to as farewell poems. Take a moment to reflect on what you have realized during your lifetime that you would want to include in your "goodbye" to life. What matters most to you?
Perhaps it would be helpful to make a list of everyone and everything you want to say farewell to. Your list might start with the word, "goodbye" or "farewell" and be followed by what you are leaving behind.
Goodbye, dear mate, goodbye dear siblings, goodbye dear body, goodbye car, goodbye Krishnamurti, goodbye Walden, goodbye Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind, goodbye dear Nature, goodbye Tao te Ching, goodbye haiku I've read and written. . .
a heron lands
on the side of a mountain
unloosing another rock
