If I Should Go

This popular funeral poem by Joyce Grenfell is a poignant parting note to family and friends

If I Should Go

If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone
Nor when I'm gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known
Weep if you must
Parting is Hell
But life goes on
So sing as well.
