'When I Die' by Yehuda Amichai

Over the years Mum would sticky-tape little articles, wise words and poems on the walls of her study.

When Celina and I packed up her house, I carefully removed the sticky-tape and collected them all.

One poem that stood out for me was called: 'When I Die', by Yehuda Amichai. I wondered what it was that drew mum to it.

A couple of years ago I filmed mum reciting it.

Pheeew, she read her favourite poem well!
