Grief/loss

When I Am Gone

When I am gone, you can love me best

By giving the parts of me away to whose who wait to die

Or those who wait to see

Or those who wait to live.

And if you need me

Put your arms around someone else 

Someone who is worthy of your need

And feel with them, the love I gave

Let it come.

You can love me best

By loving, by giving

By living your life like it cries to be lived

By letting go when the natural order demands it

By being at peace with the circle of life.

When I am gone, you can love me best

By seeking more love.

For love never dies, only people do.

When all that is left of me is love,

Give me away.
