Just a smile and a listening heart,
Isn’t that enough?

One day, on the edge of death,
I hope to say, “I’ve done my part,”
And smile, satisfied with that, the simplest
Of meanings. Waking Up, who needs it?
Just a smile, and a listening heart,
The breeze knows more
Than I ever will.

  1. If you like dark comedy—I don’t, purportedly—you might appreciate Auslander’s novel _Hope: A Tragedy_. The narrator is hung up on death, in particular final words. He really wants to make use of those final words. He studies (in)/famous last words. The book is definitely not politically correct.
