If you need to weep

Love doesn’t die, people do
When I die if you need to weep

Cry for your brother or sister
Walking the street beside you
And when you need me put your arms around anyone
Give them what you need to give me

I want to leave you something
Something better than words or sounds

Look for me in the people I have known or loved
And if you cannot give me away
At least let me live in your eyes, not in your mind

You can love me most by letting hands touch hands
By letting bodies touch bodies
And by letting go of children that need to be free

Love doesn’t die, people do;
So when all that’s left of me is love
Give me away
