Indian Prayer

A traditional Indian prayer ideal for a funeral service of any religion or no religion. A short funeral poem about grief and loss.

Indian Prayer

When I am dead

Cry for me a little

Think of me sometimes

But not too much.


Think of me now and again

As I was in life

At some moments it‘s pleasant to recall

But not for long.


Leave me in peace

And I shall leave you in peace

And while you live

Let your thoughts be with the living.
