Why must you wait to bring flowers to me
Till my eyes are closed and I can not see?
Why must you wait till I am dead
For all your kind words to be said?
I want to see and smell your flowers;
Your kind words would ease my lonely hours.
I want your love and friendship now;
Why wait till death's hand has touched my brow?

It may be that after I am dead
There will be things you'll wish were said.
Give me now a few words of cheer
To brighten the days that are dark and drear;
I do not want flowers after I'm dead
Nor a costly monument placed at my head.
