Day 73: Requiem

What makes up an ode to the dead?

Are heartfelt words necessary?

Will tears suffice?

Can feelings be bigger than your thoughts?

Can they spread from your soul-

tendrils, like the roots spread from a tree?

But roots are meant to bind to earth

and a requiem,

well, a requiem severs the last tie.
