“Here Be Roses” – Manila, 08 May 2016

don’t
bring me
roses
when i
am dead
and gone;
don’t
deck my
bier
with a
profusion
of blooms
when my
eyes
have closed
forever.

let me
bury
my face
in velvet
petals
and let
my nose
relish
the perfume;
let my
eyes
glow with
pleasure
and my
lips
exclaim in
delight
at a
token
of light
of love
of life.
