“One by One” by Ayesha F. Hamid

Your ashes will sit in a lifeless urn
of dead stone, on a table of dark tone

Your remains will wait quietly
till you are called back by the One
to be put back together again
to be given back everything
the tumors took away
one by one,
your body healed, your eyes soft blue,
red blood back, flowing forward and through,
so the whole face is lit up yet again.

Then, we will all look at you,
look at your resplendence,
and feel your warming light,
without guilt, without pain when
finally, one day, we see you again.
