Last Request - By: Maxine Carter

Please don't say that I gave up. Just say that I gave in.
Don't say I lost the battle, for it was God's war to lose or win.
Please don't say how good I was, but that I did my best.
Just say I tried to do what's right, to give the most I could, not less.
Please don't give me wings or halos. That's for God to do.
I want no more that I deserve; no extras, just my due.
Don't be concerned about me now. I'm well with God. I made it home.
Don't talk about my fate. Its over and it's done.
Just see to my family needs - especially my parents & siblings.
When you draw a picture of me, don't draw me as a saint.
I've done some good. I've done some wrong. So use all your paint.
Not just bright and light tones, use some gray and dark.
In fact, don't put me on a canvas. Paint me on your heart.
Don't just remember good times. But remember all the bad.
For life is full of many things, some happy and some sad.
But if you must do something, then I have one request:
Forgive me for the wrongs I've done, and with the love that left
Thank God for my soul's resting. Thank God, for I've been blessed.
Thank God for all who love me. Praise God, who loved me best.

Rest In Peace!
