Smoke Signals - Poem by Ted Sheridan

If my last breath is a gasp for more life
then bury me shallow for I will try to return
And should my last breath be a sigh in relief
then bury me deep my soul to keep
But should my last breath be unheard
well then burn my flesh and bones
For on them I have scratched my last will and testament
leaving nothing else to say…
