If I Should Go

Joyce Grenfell 

 

If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone
Nor when I’m gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known
Weep if you must
Parting is hell
But life goes on
So sing as well.

  1. Life does go on and it is always worth living but it’s now how I imagine a life having lost the sense of smell or a life with sudden colourblindness must feel.
