If you must leave me, please
leave me for something special,
like a beautiful bowl of black petunias

for when the memories leak
and cracks appear
and old memories fade,
flowers rebuff bloom,
sidewalks fester weeds
and we both lie down
separately from each other
for the very last time.

***************************************************************

Michael Lee Johnson kindly made available for us an audio, reading of the poem. You can listen to it, HERE!
