bittersweet graffiti

My first thought at seeing this weeks Magpie photo prompt (below) was
“There’s always room for Jell-O”.
I then read the sentence under the photo….
“a grave in the Novodevichy Cemetery, Moscow”
No room for Jell-O there.
As sweet and non-filling as it is…
~

you can’t take it with you
that’s a bone hard fact
but you certainly
can leave
a little something for dessert behind…
a gift to the world
a memento
a trinket or two of your time spent
here on this rock.

what would you leave
your jewels
your words
your mother’s eyes
your father’s voice
what would you give
to a world that held you
~

a deep fear of mine
is leaving
you alone
behind
worse than that
is you
leaving me
before your time
~

Ahhh life.
How’s it going so far?

Like my friend Braja reminds me
Don’t forget to laugh
