Memento Mori

Thank you for telling me I would have died
It was the most honest thing
Anyone said to me, all year

The parts of me that wanted to,
—did
What remains has chosen
—To stay

Your stories are written all over your face
Nuances and character
You can never hide who you are
Steal away

Thank you for telling me I would have died
Now my body understands
There is so much more—
To say
Here.
