Burn Me Up(Written In Kuwait)

Poem By O.S. Brooks

-take my last breath, and when i'm gone
Do not wish ill on me,
For while I lived, I tried to give you,
All that I could see.

-take my limbs-then bury me,
Or put my ashes out to sea,
For while I lived I tried to give you,
All that I could see.

-take my heart-so I can rest,
Pin no metals on my chest,
For all I've done your days with me,
Was tried to give you all I've seen.

-take my writings-look in close,
Read between the lines,
For while I'm gone, I'll still live on,
A testiment through time.

-take my belongings-burn them up,
Do not think those of me,
Only know, that while I lived,
I tried to give,
You all that I could see.

We've been through far to many days apart,
Yet through them all,
You've stayed within,
The center of my heart.

During times beneath the heavens
Few are seldom blessed to see
