Let There Be No Anger, The Night You Die. -   Terza-sonnet

Let there be no anger, the night you die.
Your life has been long and you want to go.
Please leave us without rage, go with a sigh.

Your death is imminent, don't let it show.
Try to look peaceful, you might even smile.
Don't try to speak, rest - just go with the flow.

Close your eyes, sleep, rest for a while.
Someone will be with you, all of the time.
Don't worry Mum, you are on your last mile.

Ninety years have passed, so now it is time.
Your journey's end reached time to take your leave.
Go towards the light, for that is your sign.

Dad will be waiting and that is no lie,
Let there be no anger, the night you die.

Today, I would like to challenge you to write a poem that responds, in some way, to another. This could be as simple as using a line or image from another poem as a jumping-off point, or it could be a more formal poetic response to the argument or ideas raised in another poem. You might use a favorite (or least favorite poem) as the source for your response. And if you’re having trouble finding a poem to respond to, here are a few that might help you generate ideas: β€œThis World is Not Conclusion,” by Peter Gizzi, β€œIn That Other Fantasy Where We Live Forever,” by Wanda Coleman, β€œLa Chalupa, the Boat,” by Jean Valentine, or β€œAubade: Some Peaches, After Storm,” by Carl Phillips.

Happy writing! http://www.napowrimo.net

I have used the Terza-sonnet Form and am answering the famous “Do not go gently into that good night” by Dylan Thomas.
