Ya’aburnee

Someday you will die.
I know that when you are gone, so am I.
It’s selfish, I know, but even this pessimist has hope
that someday you will bury me.

    This is so beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes the first time I read it and now when I read it again. Both times it inspired different feelings but both times I am amazed at its raw emotion.
