Final Hope

by butterflyzrfree

Plant bulbs by the river when I'm dying
When I die by the river this day
plant crocus, plant tulips, plant daffodils,
beauty be reborn from the clay.

When seafarers come down this river
they will look at the flowers and say
on their way with their nets to the ocean
that someday their future will lay

In a flowerbed lining a river
that's how they wish it to be,
for their wives and dear daughters t'remember
their pa who lived life on the sea.

As the years pass will banks line with flowers?
for the spring of this year that I die?
then my wishes will so be completed
and in heaven with joy I will cry.

When all rivers are covered with flowers
and a legend will pass days of old
how the banks were once bare and unsmiling
and the sea life unfriendly and cold

Plant bulbs by the river as I'm dying
for the love I have given, I leave
so the future will someday be better
food and beauty My friends can achieve.

and behind those flowers plant foodstuffs
for horses the hay and the grain
and vast acres of fruits and of vegetables
so the people, full stomachs' regain.

my legacy of flowers beginning
a destiny for each human born
that on dying they promise to pass on
this gift to the world, forevermore...
