Don’t wear black at my funeral, please

 

I want to be dressed in Autumn and I want to smell like Fall

So please come dressed in Summer and bring with you a lovely Spring breeze

 

But please: don’t wear black at my funeral

 

Come wearing the richest Red and the brightest Green
Represent the most gorgeous Rose the world has ever seen

Come to my funeral in flagrant Yellow and soft and quiet Blues

 

But don’t come to my funeral in black which is only for grooms and the bearing of bad news

 

You may even come in Winter Blues
If you promise that the new life Springs Sing with you
If you promise that the Sweet Summer breeze blows in with you

Come with Purples and Browns of light and nice hues

You know I like the lovely colors the ones so light and safe and warm

 

So please don’t come to my funeral
Dressed in the colors of the dead


Not black. Please. Anything but that.

 

Come in White and Pink or Grey or Red

Adorn yourself in light colors from your toe to your head
Come in Blues and Greens or Purple and Blue
Whatever nice colors look nicest on you

 

Anything but black. If you must, dress in White.

Pretend today is your wedding night.
