The Beauty of Grief

When All That's Left Is Love 

When I die
If you need to weep 
Cry for someone 
Walking the street beside you. 
You can love me most by letting
Hands touch hands, and 
Souls touch souls. 
You can love me most by 
Sharing your goodness and 
Multiplying your acts of kindness. 
You can love me most by 
Letting me live in your eyes 
And not on your mind. 
And when you say 
Kaddish for me 
Remember what our 
Torah teaches, 
Love doesn’t die 
People do. 
So when all that’s left of me is love 
Give me away.

by Rabbi Allen S. Maller
