What Would You Have Worn To My Funeral?

What would you have worn to my funeral
If on Tuesday I would had died?
Would you have worn black as is customary?
Or would you have worn white?
White gives a sense a purity and peace
Black shows a respect most known
White reflects the sunshine brighter
Black invites the warmth home
Whatever color you would have worn
Would have been fine with me
You could have worn green or purple
Or a cool shirt in summer pink
I just hope you wouldn't have judged
Anyone there for what they wore
Life is too short to waste it away
You don't have time for that anymore
I didn't die on Tuesday
I'm alive, my life was spared
But I know it could be any moment
That death can be declared
My plea, my request, my offer
Is that you spend the time you're here
Loving and living wisely
And make a difference that won't quickly disappear
