Three days after popular On Air Personality, Tosyn Bucknor passed on at the age of 37, a poem supposedly written by her has surfaced online.

In the poem which has gone viral, Tosyn warned that people should not cry when she’s gone but shed tears for themselves. She added that she felt no fear for death and vowed to leave a lasting voice.

She concluded with ‘’Here lies she who lived short but well No regrets for her, but all her story tell”.

Tosyn Bucknor was said to have died as a result of complications from sickle cell. Her husband, Aurelien Boyer found her dead on Monday night.

The poem reads:

‘’I look into the future and see me cease, I feel no fear, my face won’t even cease

‘’My steps on this earth, a testament to life leaving this place filled with strife ‘’Don’t cry for me, shed tears for yourself for each date you acquire gives you a little less.

‘’Now I know why I live the way I do Any why my mistakes, no second look ‘’If I live my life according to their pace what’s my price in life’s meaningless race? ‘

’Too much odds stacked against this fierce soul, so each hour, all I do is attain my goals ‘’Spent a lot of days searching for purpose, Then I put my thoughts into poetry and prose

‘’This is why I was put in this world, be a voice, Put emotions in words ‘’For every tear I shed and times my eye smiled, someone will have known every option I tried. ‘

’This cowardly heart felt fear not death Prize I’ve earned since my birth ‘’My vow to leave a lasting voice after I was Find a loyal number to keep fighting my cause ‘’Here lies she who lived short but well No regrets for her, but all her story tell”.
