These Are The Words I Want To Leave Behind When It Is Time To Start The Next Adventure
TO REMEMBER ME
Give my sight to the man who has
never seen a sunrise, a baby's face,
or love in the eyes of a woman.
Give my heart to a person whose
own heart has caused nothing
but endless days of pain.
Give my blood to the teenager who
was pulled from the wreckage of
his car, so that he might live
to see his grandchildren play.
Give my kidneys to one who depends
on a machine to exist from week to week.
Take my bones, every muscle, every
fibre and nerve in my body and find
a way to make a crippled child walk.
Explore every corner of my brain. Take my cells, if necessary,and let them grow, so that someday, a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her window.
Burn what is left of me and
scatter the ashes to the winds,
to help the flowers grow.
If you must bury something, let
it be my faults, my weaknesses and all
prejudice against my fellow man.
Give my sins to the devil.
Give my soul to God.
If by chance, you wish to remember
me, do it with a kind deed or
word to someone who needs you.
If you do all I have asked,
I will live forever.
