Final Sleep?

Is this your final sleep?
Was your last memory
   that moment before you slipped into sleep
And now you are in blesséd Limbo?
Will, then your next memory be of joyous Paradise,
   while we mourn your earthly passing?

Or ...

Are you dreaming of your life
   as you wished it to be:
Childhood uncheated, adventurous, safe and loved?
Romance unbetrayed, love pure and deep?
Family warm and joyous, growing into caring citizens?
Sins unlived and never tempting?

Or ...

Are you floating across the ocean
   on the boat of your body,
Seeing in the distance the shore of Paradise?
Soon, soon to step off the deck of your body
   into the arms of Eternity?
