If I die young

I want the person who

could've loved me

to still know love

just with someone else.

I want them to touch my hand

once

maybe hold it

as they look at me

and take care of my

decaying body.

I want the boy nextdoor

to know he can

be loved too,

and to not

stay caught up

on the person he couldn't talk to

on me.

I hope that

Papa finds a wife

and Mother stays

with Brother,

and if I die young

I want the world to know

I did love some things.
