When It's My Time

When it's my time

To leave this earth,

Lie me down

Atop my hearth.

Close my eyes,

Say goodbye, 

Light a match,

Watch me die.

And as I burn

To reveal my bones,

Across this land

My light has shone.

Take my ashes,

For I have sinned,

Aand let them go

Into the wind.

Now I depart

From you not forever,

Do not forget me,

We'll soon be together.
