One by One

Your ashes will sit
in a lifeless urn
of dead stone
on a desk
made of dark wood
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
and then
we will all look at you
at your warming light
your resplendence
without guilt, without pain
when finally
one day
we see you again.
