Sing To Me - Poem by Melvina Germain

I know my life will never truly end, grant no sympathy to me.
Save your heart my old, old friends and strengthen my

When it's time to cross over that proverbial line I know I'll
leave hurting souls behind. But my wish is that you shed
no unnecessary tears and celebrate our precious years.

Sing for me, sing me through the end, let me hear your
voices loud and clear. And if my lips show no smile,
realize I'm smiling large within.
