i have read so many poems on here , some have delighted me , others brought tears to my eyes and others a pain to my heart , some deal with subjects so utterly awful . i feel almost suicidal , so thought i'd better write my own epitaph .
i am hoping the music will invite all of my friends to get up and have a loving smoochy dance . i'll be looking in and smiling .

the old stone mason

has been practicing his craft

carving the words i want

for my epitaph .

....................................

the simple words will read

as i wish them to

dear lord in heaven

here lies a man who loved you .

...................................................

to all of my family

and the friends that i leave

i've had a wonderful life

and i beg you not to grieve .

..............................................

for i loved you

with every inch of my heart

let that love be my legacy

as i depart .

........................................

please remember me with laughter

for the life i chose to live

promise to love as i loved

the best parting present to give .

................................................

i'm now sat by the father

as he watches over you

please remember him sometimes

and keep your hearts loving and true .

.............................................................

i'll live in your hearts forever

i'm there whenever you smile

so celebrate our time together

and let me bow out in style .
