“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 of soft hue
red blood back, flowing forward and through
so the whole face is lit up again.

Then, there will be resplendence
with the feeling of your warming light
without guilt, without pain
when finally one day, we see you again.
