When I Die

I want no tears shed, though I know that’s hard to do.

When I die, create a celebration with all my friends and family. Food, music, laughter, and love.

When I die, release biodegradable floating lanterns at sundown, a special memory to look back on in the future.

When I die, turn my body to ash and press me into an eternal reef. Let my body help the sea.

When I die, think of me fondly in a small passing moment when you smile just a small one.

When I die, smoke the finest green you’ve ever seen, another new memory, just for me.

When I die, remember that you are loved and I cherished all the time I had here.

When I die, rejoice. Have fun, dance, drink, smoke, yell, holler, jump, chant, and laugh. Do whatever you need to do.

When I die, I know you’ll miss me and that’s okay too.
