If I Die Young

if i die young it will be 
at 95   surrounded
by friends and family
as we take afternoon tea
there will be champagne on ice
lovely luscious lemon squares
salty   spicy-hot cheese straws 
slices of soft sweet pound cake
i will hold court from my bed
swathed with sheer silk canopies
as yards of laughter cut from 
the bolt of my life fade to 
endless stories born of our
intertwined lives   braided of
love   woven into fine cloth 
i will smile   sip tea   wait to
take sweet kisses from each of you
hold your warm hands in mine  
cool now as i feel myself
fade   grow smaller 
sunshine will shimmer through thin
curtains as it begins its
descent   bathing our faces
in soft light of my dying
i will love you forever
