    The poet is not mournful about the fact that he is going to die. He believes death is necessary to cross the boundary between life and death in order to meet the creator. He requests his friends not to cry or grieve when he is dying as death is not exactly an end to the poet. He wishes to leave the mortal life in a calm and peaceful manner and look forward to the afterlife.
