Do not come when I am dead To sit beside a low green mound. Or bring the first gay daffodils Because I love them so. For I shall not be there. You cannot find me there. I will look up at you from the eyes Of little children; I will bend to meet you in the swaying boughs Of bud-thrilled trees. And caress you with the passionate sweep Of storm-filled winds; I will give you strength in your upward tread Of everlasting hills; I will cool your tired body in the flow Of the limpid river; I will warm your work-glorified hands through the glow Of the winter fire; I will soothe you into forgetfulness to the drop, drop. Of the rain on the roof; I will speak to you out of the rhymes Of the Masters; I will dance with you in the lilt Of the violin. And make your heart leap with the bursting cadence Of the organ; I will flood your soul with the flaming radiance Of the sunrise. And bring you peace in the tender rose and gold Of the after-sunset. All these have made me happy; They are a part of me; I shall become a part of them. — Juanita deLong
