When I die Poem by Joey Smith


Lay me, in a solitary grave yard.
Where no one has been laid there before.
I wan't a tall square grave stone laid on top of me.
Lay me under a sicamore.

Lay a purple flower on top of my grave stone,
because purple is my least favorite color of them all.
Buy a blue jay, and stand over my grave and let fly away.
And may that sicamore grow high and tall.

I want it to grow high, to touch the sky, for all to see.
Because this is the remembrance of me.

    if i were u i would choose to be burned and the ashes could spread all over the world....taken in pieces and go to places i have never been before...even when i die

    nice choice though

    Do not know why there was an oversight per comments on this poem
    It's nice, rhymes and has a basic dying man's last request for rememberance via his grave marker. Liked the releasing into flight the Blue Jay.
    Nice-I'd give it a nine for good imagery. God bless-Michael Jeffrey Gale. (Report) Reply
