A Rose For My Grave


Will you place a rose upon my grave
To let everyone know where I am resting
Please do not be scared, but be brave
This is not a command, but only a requesting
Underneath the earth where I will lay
Where forever I will be sleeping
And through GOD I will be awakened one day
So for now please let there be no weeping

On my grave will you leave a single rose
And recite to me one of your written prose
You may think I am not there, but I will be listening
Happy I will be as my grave you will be christening
Death it is not to forget, but it is to remember
And the grave is just a resting spot for a life’s member
So please come by and be happy I suppose
And on my grave, please leave a single rose.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
