funerals for the living III

now don't think i've forgotten the flowers.

the flowers. don't bring flowers to my funeral, i cannot smell their freshness then, i cannot see the colors.

bring your loved ones flowers while air still moves through their lungs, while you can still see their faces light up.

tell your friends you love them and kiss them and hold hands and laugh together. cry with your family, tell your mother her hair shines so pretty in the sun. tell the beautiful boy on the bus you love him though you don't know his name.

these are the kinds of things that breathe life back into a person. these are the kinds of things that make that life worth living.
