When I Die - Poem by Nicole Heintz
When I die…
…I would like to give the organs of my body to save people’s lives.
As fire purifies everything, I’d like to be cremated.
It would be wonderful if my ashes could be scattered in the sea,
I would live my death in deep blue water
And spend eternity as a holiday-maker…
I would like you to play jazz, blues, Gospel and rock,
I can’t spend a single day without listening to music,
So I’ll need melody when I die…
You will laugh too, I hope,
Life and death are worthless without humour.
And if you dropp some tears, don’t worry, I’ll forgive you…
I hope that when you look at my photographs,
You will remember my jokes, my laughter,
My love for the sea, the sun and summertime…
You will wear colourful clothes too, won’t you?
I love colours…
Please don’t forget to eat some chocolate
And smoke a few cigarettes…
…When I die…
