An Empty Win

Thanks to you

I may die a death unexpected

But before, I will also

Cry tears of joy uncried

Dance dances undanced

Spread my arms wider than ever

Seek and welcome new voices

Ride a train with new passengers

Sing songs unsung

To celebrate a new love

That will last a lifetime

Death will not be your victory

But rather a chance to mark a life well lived

Filled with love and passion

Beauty and blessings

Gratitude and grace

I do not welcome you

But neither do I fear

Because I entrust my Tomorrow

My soul

My being

To those who have carried me

Past your dark doorstep

You may get my body

But I keep my spirit
