Memento Mori


I never thought the last view I’d see
would be you sent off to the fire
Your body now just a shell
still I know who you are
a father I’ve loved
mortal, now gone
nothing left
but ash

    1. Just don’t look at all those mementos before going to bed 🙂

      Have you seen the movie, “The Others” with Nicole Kidman? It mentions memento mori there, and it’s one of my favorite scary movies 🙂

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
