Message

There I was:
drafting the message
with the hope I wasn't too harsh
full of words like
your father's body
a box of ashes
and his life now reduced
to so many photographs
receipts and cancelled passports
If there is any good way to say
any of this
to mark the end
please scratch it here
soon enough you will need this
to wave me off
to send me home
