"When I die,
if you need to weep,
Cry for someone
Walking the street beside you.

And when you need me
Put your arms around others,
And give them what you need to give me.

You can love me most by letting

Hands touch hands, and
Souls touch souls.

You can love me most
by letting me live in your deeds,

and not on your mind...

Remember what our Torah teaches:
Love doesn't die,
People do.
So when all that's left of me is love,
Give me away."

Adapted from Spiritual Renewal
by Rabbi Allen Maller and Rabbi Jeffrey Marx
