The Remains

when I die, cremate my remains,
put them in a box, and leave
them for the angels.
but remember the true remains:
laughter, tears, joy love, pain,
wind, sun and rain.

the end of the world comes
to each of us, but that happy
family having a good time
by the fire in their back yard
on a cool October evening
