Love

When my bones
are bleached
and brittle
from carrying my stories
I hope to say I have loved

When my skin has sagged,
etched with experience
and rivulets of tears, both
sadness and laughter,
have eroded my face
I hope to say I have loved

When my organs have quietly
carried me through this one life
and absorbed its shocks as
well as its synchronistic surprises
I hope to say I have loved

When at last I leave this plane
and move on to the great wonder
I hope to find that all
there is, is love
