What to Bury

If you want to live a life that matters and has the Peace of God in it, learn to know what to bury and what to remember. This Poem I often read at funerals says much about what is important.

A time has come when my life on earth has ceased.

I ask you my family and friends, remember these special things:

Bury my body, but don’t bury my beliefs.

Bury my heart, but don’t bury my love.

Bury my eyes, but not my vision.

Bury my feet, but not the path of my life.

Bury my hands, but don’t bury my diligent efforts.

Bury my shoulders, but not the concerns I carried.

Bury my voice, but not my message.

Bury my mind, don’t bury my dreams.

Bury me, don’t bury my life.

If you must bury something:

Let it be my faults and weaknesses,

My shortcomings and limitations,

My imperfections and failures.

But let my life continue on, in each and every one of you.

Lord Bless,

Chaplain Ronnie Melancon
