elegy…

I woke up with this poem in my head…I can’t say what sparked it, maybe it’s knowing a couple of friends have lost someone recently, maybe it’s a loss I’ve had in my life. I dunno.

elegy

my best hope
when i am ended
is that no one
will say
my life was taken
from me
or that
i grew tired
of breathing…
instead, perhaps
they will gather
and begin a light volley
using resonant words-
passionate, wise
loving, peaceful
vibrant, loyal
each one striking the strings
playing soft chords
finding deep rhythm
only the heart
could speak
