Last Will and Testament*
By Greg Hoffenbacker

when i die
drop my tears
into the ocean
scatter my laughter
on the wind
pour my love
into a rain cloud
bury my memories
beneath an oak tree
whisper my dreams
to the stars
lay my body
on a mountaintop
take my spirit
to the light
please, Angel
take me home
