                                                                                                     When I die

The last thing I want is for you to cry.
I want you to remember that when I laughed too hard,
I coughed and got sick,
that I ate too much candy
and that I was a gluttonous mess at the dinner table.

I want you to remember the times
we called each other names
and sometimes intentionally hurt one another


                                                                                                    When I die

Please don't call me perfect,
and say everyone liked me.
Or that I lit up every room I walked into.

Recall my flaws with genial humor,
and chuckle at our inside jokes.

                                                                                                   When I die

Know that you'll always be protected
my labor of love will be never ending,
because then I'll know what it's like
for loved ones who passed
before me:
You'll never be alone again.

And lastly,  
                                                                                                   When I die

I hope that you all say
that I had a love affair

                                                                                                    With Life.

I think it's a dream of many to be remembered exactly the way they are, you know?

And thank you :rose:
