When my last bell tolls,
and death has stopped by.
Will it much matter?
I wonder who will cry?

Will anyone remember,
anything special about me?
Will I leave behind,
any sweet memories?

The sad truth is, that
I'll probably never know.
But, I sure would like to,
before my time to go.

Give me my flowers now,
Don't wait until I die.
Don't place them on my grave,
when you come to say goodby.

Let me enjoy them now.
They will say that you care.
If you wait until I'm gone.
I won't know, they are there.

While I live, I want to know,
that I'm special to someone.
This is my request, before
all is said and done.

I don't want your tears, after
death's knocked at my door.
I would like to be remembered,
Now....not for evermore.

It's the little things that matter.
When it comes from the heart.
Let me have the pleasure of them.
It's all wasted, once I depart.

I believe this is the sentiment of mostpeople.

I place blossoms in the bud vase, and trust it will overflow before your eyes.
