To Those Left Behind by Fiona McHugh

Please don’t stand by my grave and cry
For I have sucked all the nectar out of life
Now that my soul has taken flight
I promise you, I’ll be alright
Lay down those flowers, and leave the stone
I can assure you, you’re not alone
When you accept the present and let emotions pass through
I can promise, that and time will heal you
Bask yourself in the light of peace
I swear, it’ll make it much easier for when you leave
What if we release attachment?
To all expectations and past habits?
I know you see this as rock bottom for you
Yet instead of climbing up, what if you break through?
