A sonnet written for my English class this week.

 

 

I wish you peace and bid this sweet farewell

your heart to soar, to rise from ash new lands

No longer flawed in flesh, be free, go dwell

on high, forget the hurt, the twisted hands

 

Enrobed in painful quiet, the end takes you 

silence shrill beeps, red lights, and cute nurses.

Your death chills our heart like cold mourning dew;

As your stiff body goes under, your mom curses

 

But how could you leave now without a kiss

before you’ve seen the ocean? known love? been free?

Too new to live out loud! Too young to miss

what you could not have known in this brief visit.

 

Fear not the end, a body is but a jail…

Our souls are sure to meet beyond the veil.
