Re-member


Re-member— to put ourselves back together after being torn apart by life. Remember your lost loves with a poem. Make rituals and special days. Today is 1/11, my dog day, as wan (one) is the dog’s bark in Japanese. I remember that the initial separation that death brings tore me to pieces and ripped the two of us apart. The path of healing, becoming whole, is embracing the torn self, the broken heart, and making it all part of me. We are no longer divided by our ephemeral bodies but united in our eternal souls.


I dreamt that I died

lost at sea

washed up on shore

and there they were

waiting for me

to return home

to them

wagging their tails

licking my face

laying together

on the sand

I knew

that we had never

ever been apart
