Death lullaby

Sleep, rest, fly
Life is over
I see it in your eyes
You know you've reached
The other side
Sleep, rest, fly
Life was long, hard
But full of joy
And though sometimes life left you scared
Your life you did enjoy
Sleep, rest, fly
While everyone is here
Leave all regrets
Before you go
We must not add more tears
Sleep, rest, fly
But hold my hand... now!
And never let it go
Before ends this death lullaby
And before life siezes to flow
Sleep, rest, fly.

  Awesome job. flow and everything was awesome. Just one little thing that I noticed while I was reading it, I don't know if you did this on purpose or if you just forgot but you changed the order of the sleep, rest, fly. The very first line of your poem reads Rest, Sleep, Fly and the very last line reads Sleep, Rest, Fly. I think that maybe you should change it so that they are in the same order. Other than that, I didn't see any spelling errors or anything, so I think it was a job well done on your part. Good job and keep up the superb writing.

  Marvelous, man. It flowed with fluidity, the words really hit home, and it kept that transe like feel till the very end. Yeah, I'm a fan of yours, I'll just say it now. Well done.

  Wow. That was so.... soo.... There are no words. I haven't read something so great in a while. Something so original and beautiful. The flow was awesome and the rhyming scheme was different, in a good way of course. I hope you keep it up, I really love your work!

  I liked this alot actually, the flow was good, the emotion was there and I really liked the way it read, it had kinda a trance like feel....which is I guess the purpose of a lullaby lol. one thing though I was kinda hoping it'd be a little more morbid.....but at the same time I like what you had and i Know that you did the repitition on purpose to make the point strong or whatever but it got a little too repititious for me. other then that very good write
much love,

  I loved it. It was both beautiful and sad at the same time. You know the whole 'your life is over theme', that was depressing. But the repetition, "sleep, rest, fly", that was great. You made it seem that even though this persons life was over, that they were moving onto something even better. That's what I got out of it.

Great poem

  i dont know if i like this too much. the way its written, "sleep, rest, fly" sounds more like a refrain than an effective motif, and while the wordplay, imagery,and overall sensibilities are strong, that one refrain makes it come off as slightly stale or cliché even when coupled with the rhyme scheme. a good write, but in my opinion needs work.

  i think when people read this poem they make up their own mind about what it means. i would like to know what it means to you. i think the way you changed the order in which sleep, rest, fly is in holds meaning. to me i think the meaning changes towards the end of the poem. these are just my views on it. let me know what you think.
keep up the great work.
take care
