• Famous Funeral Poems


When I Am Dead, Cry For Me A Little


When I am dead,

Cry for me a little,

Think of me sometimes

But not too much.


Think of me now and again

As I was in life at some moment

That is pleasant to recall -

But not too long.


Leave me in peace

And I shall leave you in peace.

And whilst you live

Let your thoughts be with the living.


(Indian Prayer)
