When we die

Like all men must

May we not be a handful of dust

Taking its place on the continent’s shelf

A son welcome home after a lifetime

Journeying on this temporal plane

May we have been the life force

In Gaia’s vein

May she sigh

A stream of tears

Run down her empty thigh

A vacant memory

A filling void

Unspoken words full of praise

Never an empty cup be raised

When we die like all men must

May we never be just

Another handful of dust.
