Turn Again To Life

If I should die and leave you here a while, 
be not like others sore undone, 
who keep long vigil by the silent dust. 
For my sake turn again to life and smile, 
nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do 
something to comfort other hearts than thine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine 
and I perchance may therein comfort you.

Mary Lee Hall
