Poem: “P.S. I’m still here” – 31/01/20

P.S. postscript,
in little hummingbird whispers,
I’m still here.
 
Advantageous circumstances finally presenting themselves
from Heaven’s open hand,
her palm which begs me to take from her,
 
I deserve these now.
 
P.S., she whispers, in airy breath,
you’ve ached enough,
no longer will you suffer,

I am here to prove you worthy and kind,
your tears of tumult disguised in the once-silent study
where tattered and worn your stoic self became

now, those tears dry, crystallising, salty.
 
P.S. I whisper
tentatively
I am here

Like those words don’t belong,
I am still here, I repeat,
enunciated, strong.
 
I will remain fighting.
