Bury Me


Bury me not in cemetery
Cover not my grave
With gravel and cement.

Sacrifice no flowers,
Upon my grave
Leave nature’s bounty to nature.

Bury me near a river glade
Where the Water buffalos graze
And roam over me.

When the river is full
And floods the glade
I’ll be thankful
For bathing me.

Please bury me, bury me
In the river glade
Where as a child
I once played.
