Cover Me

Cover me
within the earth,
place me deep.
I won’t feel pain.
I won’t bleed.
*Mortalità inevitabile.
Cover me.
I’ll shed my skin.
One life ends –
another begins.
Cover me.
Don’t mourn.
I’ll still go on
in petals of flowers,
in roots of trees,
in blades of grass,
I’ll break free.
Won’t take anything
where I’m going,
so I’ll leave my eyes
with the last visions
of your smile.
Cover me.

*Mortalità inevitabile is “inevitable mortality” in Italian.

My poetry was inspired by Tale Told’s beautiful poem dedicated to June.

I took my chance to say goodbye.
I hold the hope we’ll say hello
when I myself someday will fly,
and to my final home will go.
