When I die ,
give what is left of me ,
If you need to cry,
cry for your brothers ,walking beside you.
Put your arms around anyone
and give them what you need to give to me.
I want to leave you with something,
something better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people
I have known and loved.
And if you cannot live without me,
then let me live on
in your eyes, your mind,
and your acts of kindness.
You can love me most
by letting hands touch hands and
letting go of children who need to be free.
Love does not die,
So when all that is left of me
is love. . .
Give me away.
