Before I Am Gone

Posted to Poetry




What do I mean to you now?
that's what I want to know
Not what you'll say when I'm gone
but what you'd say today
Let me know in words you write
not unsaid rememberances
and wild dreams blown away
Tell me what I like about
dogs and the number two
Sing my favorite color
Was it really blue?
Tell me a story of what you see
and what I mean to you
Don't keep it a secret,
tell everything you know
Give me your words
Speak of the ordinary
in extraordinary ways
Please hurry
it must be soon
or else it will not matter
Send flowers to my funeral
but say the eulogy to me now.
