incomplete when you stumbled upon me

tenderly wrapping bandages around bleeding wrist
perhaps you can forgive me someday, understand
life with all it’s losses, questions, fears
as i drift further down into sweet oblivion
i cherish you cared, smile, for in death there is clarity

  2. I hope there's clarity. But it's also hard to answer the questions of those left behind.

  3. nicely done…thanks for this

  4. Good question. One can hope. I was going by a quote I heard that I found interesting: People always say, you only live once. This is untrue. You live everyday. You only die once. – Unknown

  5. Yes, but will it be what we want to see?

  6. Poignant and beautiful.
