If I should die, read this poem.
Take my memory and keep it known.
And when you do, do not weep.
For I feel no pain and rest in peace.
If I should die, when I'm still young.
Life not complete and left undone.
Then, please know, that I'm up high.
For I see you and never cry.
If I should die, when I'm a man.
Don't forget the life I had.
Take my children, take my wife.
And keep them going throughout their life.
If I should die, when I'm still old.
Take my honor and keep it bold.
Know the day was soon to show.
When God calls me, I have to go.
I could die at any time.
So stay with me, so life may shine.
If you're the best that you can be.
No matter what you'll be with me.
