Show Me

While I’m alive 

Don’t bother with flowers at my grave 

Nor sing a song of brotherhood 

To my memory 

When I’m long and gone

Rejoice in today 

When I’m still here 

Tomorrow can be so unkind 

Think of me dead now

And relish in finding me breathing 

Throw your arms

Around me 

And embrace me like found gold 

For the eternal sleep 

Beckons with ruthless abandon 

Raise your cups 

And salute what we hold this minute 

Do not waste another second 

Tell me

You do love me

Before the words fall on deaf ears 

And the sound of my voice is no more 

Show me
