Scattered Ashes - Poem by Linda Ori
Will you love me in the future
Like you're loving me today,
When our skin in old and wrinkled
And what hair we have is gray?
Will you love me when I'm sleeping
Warm and cozy in my chair,
Oblivious to everything -
My life without a care?
Will you gaze at me and wonder
What it was that stole your heart -
Will you hope we'll live forever,
That we'll never be apart?
Will you cherish every moment
That we've shared in years gone by,
Will you find me over yonder
When my time has come to die?
Let's make a pact to celebrate
Our lives when they are done,
Let our spirits travel onward
Side by side beyond the sun,
May our ashes blend together
As they scatter o're the land -
On the other side of heaven
We'll be walking hand in hand.
