lyrics

when I am dead & gone
don’t put me in the ground
wrap me in cloth & clay
paint me the
colors of Easter

sing me a radio poem
one that you learned aloud
from your grandfather’s voice
before he died
in his sleep

make the sweetest sound that you can think of
sing the sweetest song that you can muster

I only trust you
far as I can throw you
still I would like you
to hear my
last testament

I have not kept much
I lived quite simply but
please see that on his grave
you place the rings
from my left hand

then make the sweetest sound that you can think of
sing the sweetest song that you’ve ever heard

it is not hard
nothing is hard
