Remember Me - I Will Live Forever
Remember Me - I Will Live Forever Poem Verses
When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of a machine. And don't call this my deathbed. Let it be called the bed of life, and let my body be taken from it to help others lead fuller lives.
Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face or love in the eyes of a woman.
Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain.
Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wreckage of his car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play.
Give my kidneys to the one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week.
Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk.Explore every corner of my brain.
Take my cells, if necessary, and let them grow so that, someday a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the sound of rain against her window.
Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow.
If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weakness and all prejudice against my fellow man.
Give my sins to the devil. Give my soul to God. If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever.

About the poem
The writer's wish is for their body to be used to benefit others, even after their death. They want their organs and tissues to be given to those who can use them to lead a better life, and for their bones, muscles, and nerves to be used to help a crippled child walk. The writer also wants their brain to be explored and their cells to be grown, so that someday a speechless boy will be able to shout and a deaf girl will hear.
Finally, the writer asks that their faults, weaknesses, and prejudices be buried with them, and that their sins be given to the devil and their soul to God. They hope that people will remember them not through grand gestures or monuments, but through small acts of kindness towards those who need it.
