Do Not Weep for Me


Do not weep for me

for I have experienced a lifetime of joy

the sounds of birthing

the squeals of jubilant voices.

Do not weep for me

for I have felt the vibrations of storms

and weathered through them with dignity.

I have witnessed the changing of seasons

and watched the children have children.

I have seen the fruits gathered and shared by many hands.

I have smelled the soups of wellness upon a cookstove,

freshly cut grass at my entrance,

and the rain both distant and near.

I have experienced these things and more.

Do not weep for me.

Weep for the forlorn.
