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?
