Scatter My Ashes

Scatter my ashes
You can't keep them here
I know you've got me in stashes
Just let go my dear

Keep our memories
Say good-bye to my body
Please be at ease
Say good-bye to my body

I'll save you a place
Up here in heaven
I'm surrounded by grace
Up here in heaven

No need to worry
I found my way home
Clear your eyes so blurry
There's no need to roam

Scatter my ashes
You can't keep them here
I know you've got me in stashes
Just let go my dear

    This seems to be a dark lyric about scattering ashes. I am amazed at how many of our friends here paint, play or write music. what a talented group. I am afraid I only write poetry. Well written verse. love phyl

    Thank you. This was my first real attempt at this, I don't know much about writing lyrics and what parts it is composed of but I like what I've done and I think that is all that matters. Thank you again -Lily <3
