Another invitation from afar
to celebrate a life well lived,
Accomplishments, friendships, quirks,
Got to love him or her kind of stuff.
Makes me wonder,
Who will show up for me
and what will they say?
What if my children give a party
and no one comes?
Just play my kind of music,
have a good time.
Then scatter my ashes on a mountain trail,
and keep on talking, singing, and living.
That’s all I ask.
