...as my ghost takes flight...

For as a dead man's carcass

Joins the ground

That once gave him life

So he too in gratitude

Responds by dying

Allowing the soil to embrace

And envelope him

Rigor mortis catalyzes

The shell that once

Hosted a lifetime of memories

That ended up

In the bouquet of flowers

That you picked beside the tombstone

So as death brings about an end

Does this end signal a new start?
