The original prayer was called, WHEN I DIE

So, this is verbatim as it appears in the prayer book, a little different from what I wrote

WHEN I DIE, GIVE ME AWAY

When I die give what’s left of me away

To children and old men that wait to die.

And if you need to cry,

Cry for your brother walking the street beside you.

And when you need me, put your arms around anyone

And give them what you need to give me.

 

I want to leave you something,

Something better than words or sounds.

Look for me in the people I’ve known or loved,

and if you cannot give me away,

at least let me live in your eyes and not in your mind.

 

You can love me best by letting hands touch hands,

And by letting go of children that need to be free.

Love doesn’t die, people do.

So, when all that’s left of me is love,

Give me away.
