When I die, don’t bring me flowers. Don’t whisper that I will be missed, Don’t kneel, don’t pray for hours Don’t shed a tear – a useless mist. Bring me the flowers now - as I am dreaming Come say hello and visit with me Let’s pray together while my heart is still beating Smile and laugh with me - life isn’t guaranteed. When I die, don’t even bother. Because I need you now, when I’m alive Don’t waste your time on an eulogy; I’d rather Enjoy your lovely words before goodbye.
