Weep not for me

I was searching the net today for a poem in which to remember my son's best friend, who sadly took his own life at the age of 25. I didn't want a religious poem, or one related to long illnesses/old age. I came upon this one, and am afraid I do not know the author, but would like to share it with you in the hope that someone make take comfort in it, as I have.

Weep not for me

Weep not for me though I have gone
Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet fight

I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years

There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear is now all gone
Put now these things out of your thoughts
In your memory I live on

Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life

Sleep in peace Patrick. x
