If you are the one to bury me,

if I am so lucky as to spend my last

moments knowing your heart is the one

still trailing Earth's quiet curvature,

bury me as you have done everything

else for me, gently and sweetly.

I don't want to be a cloud of barren dust

falling to ruin on the coffee table -

I want to sleep with the trees and feel

their warm roots overtaking me, and I

want them to curl around my ears and

my arms and however else they wish, because

it won't matter to me anymore.

Don't mark my patch of land with any

tombstone - I want to be quiet, in death

as in life. Let good and evil reign above

me, for I am but one flash across

this Earth. Don't think about me or what

I'm doing, for I will surely never leave you

(never worry, dear, I am closer to you now

than I ever was before). I am not only around

you but also inside you, threading warm wings

throughout you until you come home.
