Save a space for me

Can I climb inside you to hide from the cold

Can I climb inside you to feel the warmth

we used to share on those good days

Can I join you because I am alone

Can I join you in death to make up for what we

weren’t able to capture in life…sound crazy?

I sat by my father tombestone and saw all the

names on the plot in the Belfast Cemetary in Ireland

My fathers had been added to the bottom since he

had been MIA for a long time and finally came

home to rest his soul

I might live an ocean away and have just met

my family here in Ireland but

I hope that they can make room for me…

not yet, not now because I have a whole

lot to learn about living before I join the dead

but just save a space for me for when I get there
