Answer
by Frances Faulin:

Should I pass
From the earth today
Should they wonder
Simply Say,
“She knew love”
Love was mine
To give and receive
Tell them
There’s no need to grieve.
Should they ask you why
Just tell them,
“She knew love”
Should they search
For credits by my name,
Look for signs
Of wealth or fame,
Should they question you again
Say,
“She knew love”
