Rik George writes

If I Should Die

If I should die before you wake 

some morning, take what time you need 
to know your grief before you look 
for other folk to comfort you. 
I would not go among the dead 
without remembrance or have you go 
among the living with untouched grief. 
Be with me one last while as we 
have been: one manifest in two. 
Then go about your separate life 
and let me be what the dead must be. 
If your separateness needs salve, 
then think of me as one set free 
from the weary turbulence of self.
