“I Am Richer For You” by Tami Boehle-Satterfield

dreaming girl

And it may well be
On this earth
All that is left of you
Is bones.

Your motile organic matter
Swimming
Into my thoughts.
Amounting to thoughts bound by emotion.

Memories stored
Layer upon layer,
Not beneath deep, rich, black earth,
But in beautiful, circular cells.

Spinning eternally.
The hum of life,
Better lived with loss
Than without love.
