And So it Begins

Hard

harder than death itself

I think…

The shit show.

Today is the day

everything becomes real.

Moving day for

my Aunt’s furniture.

Today

the house becomes

merely a shell.

Much like her body

when her soul left earth

to join G-d and family departed-

what she always longed for.

The furniture leaving,

the house going to family,

things going smoothly,

are all that she

wanted.

I promised everything

would go

as she wished.

Therefore,

I will breathe,

and breathe,

suck wind,

and breathe some more,

and it will be

what she wanted

from start to finish.

It’s the least I can do

for someone who

loved me so much.

I miss her…

XO Lisa
