If I die tomorrow,
I want my funeral to play music
At my wake,
Which I listened to in life
And made me feel alive again.

Because I know, others will need reminding.

If I die tomorrow,
I want everyone to dress in black
At my funeral
and wear eyeliner,
As though it were war paint.

Like I did, every Saturday morning.

Not because it represents my
old long gone
Habits of sorrow.
But because it's what I did,
To remind myself I wasn't alone.

Because they will need some strength, too.

If I die tomorrow,
I want the flowers placed around
My grave,
To be potted, planted
and alive.

Not cut from life and decaying, like me.

Because when I'm in the grave,
And people come to
remember me-
I want them to reflect on how
Even in death...

I was too kind, to be cruel...
