One Final Gift......




One Final Gift.......


Scatter me not to the restless winds

Nor toss my ashes to the sea.

Remember now those years gone by

When loving gifts I gave to thee.

Remember now the happy times

The family ties are shared.

Don't leave my resting place unmarked

As though you never cared.

Deny me not one final gift

For all those who came to see.

A simple lasting proof that says

I loved and you loved me.

My Aunt Mary & Aunt Rose used to read poetry when I was a much younger girl. I swear I've heard this and it's wonderful. Maybe I just think I heard it and it was meant to make me remember my Auntie's. Either way, thank you for the memory! Lovely poem.

Beautiful poem. I got scared when the title came up on my blog followers - thought you were leaving with one final gift to us. LOL. Glad that is not the case.

I, like Ruthie, got a little nervous when I read the title. Glad it was just a poem!
