I want my last words to be beautiful
I want them to bring meaning
Shining bright with substance
and strength.

Bigger than four letters
That love cannot be paraphrased
with saccharine syntax.

I know the strength of real friendship.
And the power of laughter.
The bear hugs and the hard times.

Betrayal tugs at these frayed bonds
Incubating inadequate apologies
And eloquent excuses.
