Before I Die
Before I die
I will write a song
so you can hear how love should sing.
Take a selfie in clown face
to remind you laughter heals everything.
Give you all of the possessions I ever lost
because appreciation is the key.
On my final day
in hopes that you remember me forever
I will plant a tree.
This poem was inspired by a Martin Luther quote. Although not found in his collected works, variations of this quote are attributed to him.
“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” – Martin Luther
