The Final Resting Place

Sadje’s what do you see prompt image is above. It immediately made me think of a special someone’s last request.

I held your hand as you took your last breath
I remembered all we had spoken about
Your love of the special lighthouse at sunset
Was as much a part of you as your every breath
I shall make the trek across the country
I shall scatter your ashes as you requested
You will become one with the place that brought you joy

  1. This is so touching and beautiful at the same time. The last line specifically is so touching and seems to reverberate in the mind even after i stopped reading… Loved it. 🙂
