When I’m dead.*
*Your tears will flow*
*But I won’t know*
*Cry with me now instead*.
*You will send flowers*,
*But I won’t see*
*Send them now instead*
*You’ll say words of praise*
*But I won’t hear*.
*Praise me now instead*
*You’ll forgive my faults,*
*But I won’t know*…..
*So forget them now* *instead*.
*You’ll miss me then,*
*But I won’t feel.*
*Meet me now, instead.*
*You’ll wish You could have spent more time with me*, *Spend it now instead*
*When you hear I’m gone, you’ll find your way to my house to pay condolence but we haven’t even spoken in years*.
*Look , listen and reply me now.*
*Spend time with every person around you, and help them with whatever you can to make them happy, your families, friends and acquaintances.* *Make them feel Special because you never know when time will take them away from you forever.*
*Alone I can ‘Say’ but* *together we can ‘Talk’*.
*Alone I can ‘Enjoy’ but together we can ‘Celebrate*’
*Alone I can ‘Smile’ but together we can ‘Laugh’*
*That’s the BEAUTY of Human Relations*.
*We are nothing without each other*
*So Stay Connected!!*

Thank you Dharma,
I agree wholeheartedly with you my friend
There had never a truer word, being said
Must thank Sam,for giving a hint & a method,
To express our feelings to mates, nearly a decade.
How true. Words of wisdom to be remembered , revered and to adhere to , now and for ever.
Thanks Dharma and Sam for the post.
Dear Dharma, My memories went back to the time we spent at Blomfonteen medical hostel. Your expressions and reactions were very enjoyable.
Thanks Dharma. Indragee
The Poem is Beautiful
But dear batchmates, Please don’t send flowers to me now.
Thank Dharma for sharing these touching verses by Tagore.Closer home, it was Tagore who inspired Ananda Samarakoon to write the words of ” Namo Namo Maatha”.It is said that the tune was created by Tagore.! Eddie
Hi Praxy and Dharma

SO So True words & Sentiments. When you read it, you think how true words they are. We need to follow those thoughts. I do try, a lot, but fall short.
Thanks for great quote. WIMAL.
