i peel down the postcard
a memory of you
a you who doesn’t exist. not anymore
i know this to be true
it hurts to know that people go
in such a silent way
be relieved. be brave. be sad. be kind. be happy.
you did live one day
there’s tragedy in each of us
intertwined with change
which parts of us will fade and die?
which parts remain the same?
so when we meet in a future past
brought together by the fates
will you be there to stay with me?
or will you have gone away?
