How Could I Ever Write My Own Eulogy?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In Loving Memory.”

Also, a shout out to Amie Writes (happy birthday!) and Bynda

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones.

A legacy is etched into the minds of others

and the stories they share about you.” ― Shannon L. Alder

To Remember Me — Robert N. Test

Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise,

a baby’s face or love in the eyes of a woman.

Give my heart to a person whose own heart

has caused nothing but endless days of pain.

Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his car,

so that he might live to see his grandchildren play.

Give my kidneys to the one who depends on a machine

to exist from week to week.

Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body

and find a way to make a crippled child walk.

Explore every corner of my brain.

Take my cells, if necessary, and let them grow so that,

someday a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat

and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her window.

Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes

to the winds to help the flowers grow.

If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weakness

and all prejudice against my fellow-man.

Give my sins to the devil.

Give my soul to God. If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with

a kind deed or word to someone who needs you.

If you do all I have asked, I will live forever.
