The poem(s) are below...



Do not bury or do not burn
When death will be on my turn.
Don't shout and don't run
Everyone has his own turn
Be calm and be quiet 
Think always what's right.
Death will stop the brain
But organs will remain
Eyes kidneys or liver
Can save some more.
I wish to donate a body
To students for study.
All should wish because,
Gift of life is noble cause.
