Post-Mortem Proposal

Always and Forever

By Sara WynnPublished 2 years ago 1 min read
Lovers of Valdaro (Mantua, Italy) 4,000-5,000 B.C., discovered 2008

One day I will have died,

a green grass blanket where my body lies

a stone to mark a name on my short life

I’ll be missing out on sunlight,

no more feeling, no more sight

and all I’ll ever want is you.

Will you bury your bones with mine?

Can we rest beneath the clay together

with fingers and legs intertwined?

Let’s sleep together in death

as we loved together in life.

Will you bury your bones with mine?

They will find us someday

after our gravestone has crumbled away

and they’ll know how much I loved you

by the way our bones together lay.

love me now, before our lives are through

because you know in death, these stubborn

bones of mine will still be loving you.
