I Died Today

I died today —
A wondrously, fine, strategic death.
No regrets, no pain, except to say Goodbye.
My breath evaporated from where I lay,
As if to signal the infinite end — No return.
I sighed my final, transient sigh so heavy.
My death, they say, was noble, yet tragic —
A fitting finale to a remarkable Life,
Full, resplendent and quite extraordinary.
Now I shall sleep for but a while,
And you will remember me the same.
