Poem - To Remember Me

TO REMEMBER ME

A poem by Robert N. Test


Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face,
or love in the eyes of a woman.

Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless
days of pain.

Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his
car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play.

Give my kidneys to one who depends on a machine to exist from week to
week.

Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find
a way to make a crippled child walk.

If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses, and all
prejudice against my fellow man.

Give my sins to the devil.

Give my soul to God.

If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word
to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever.
