To my family when God takes me

Published September 18. 2010 09:00AM

Dear Editor:

When I have passed and cease to be

Please don't kill a flower for me

to deck my casket lid or grave

Then leave with heat or cold to brave.

Instead - if you must - plant a small shrub or tree

Or a pack of perennial seeds you will see

When they grow into flowers that sway in the air

Some gentle reminders to say a short prayer.

You won't see me resting my lid will be closed

The ritual simple - already proposed.

Remember me smiling and living each day

And please at the end let me do it my way.
