Life After Death
I hold the soil in my hand, relishing the feel of it. The coolness. The richness. I never considered myself a caretaker of the earth before, but since you left me, I find solace in gardening.
As I sit here working the rich earth, I remember how it was. How you looked that first time I saw you. How you smiled enigmatically at me as your fingers danced over the strings of your guitar.
As you dared me to show you all what I had inside of me.
Your artifice with music was amazing to see. Inspiring on so many levels.
As you well knew. Even your quiet presence inspired me. Encouraged me.
You tended me. Nourished me. Quietly watched me flourish, and then sent me out on my own, despite my fears.
You believed in me.
I can do this. Gardening. I need to do this.
Bring life after death.
I only wish I could bring you back to me.
I love you, Daniel.
