    I have it written on my bedroom wall. I’d like it to be on my tombstone one day.

    I don’t even want a funeral! I don’t want people coming to my grave and weeping all over it! No! I don’t want any person’s tears! So what? I was there and then I’m not! Be joyful, for the love of something! There are enough damned tears in the world, aren’t there? Why won’t you say, ‘She was alive, how lucky she was, and now it’s over for her. But I have another day! How lucky I am!’

    This is really beautiful, a friend of mine recently committed suicide and well I feel like he’d feel this way.

    this is the poem on the back of my best friends funeral card who passed away this summer.
    Neil it is selfish to wish you were still here, because now i know you are everywhere. I can still say i miss you to death, because i do. Your words echo inside me, and i will carry out the actions of great kindness in which you have begun.

    I love you brother, i always will. Even if you won’t be there at the next gathering to give me a bathrobe hug.

    I lost my daughter a year ago – she was only 47. The poem brought me some comfort – it is so beautiful and so true. I will have it read at my funeral.

    This is a lovely poem- we sang this in choir, it makes it even more beautiful! Check out the youtube of a choir singing it!

    this was on the card handed out a good friend of mine’s funeral. i think we should celebrate death. is is selfish of us as humans for mourn, simply because we can’t experience this soul physically anymore, while they are able to finally experience THE ALL OF EVERYTHING! that is cause for celebration in my opinion.

      @Sugar Magnolia, i think that the idea of celebrating death is very interesting, believing that there might be something else, something better beyond. I think we should learn how to love life without fearing death.
      Celebrating life, and celebrating death are two things that will make us better beings. Thanks for suggesting this, you made my day :)

    So beautiful. One of my favorites. I want this to be the only “reading” at my funeral.
