All I’ve Been

Tasted a red berry,
felt red.  
Smelled a bluebell,
felt blue.  
Put on a wool suit,
went out feeling
woolly and wild

till I saw you.

When I could not
become you,
I swore to be
close to you until 
our ashes
could be mingled

once we were
no longer.

After all
I’ve been
and felt,

what I am now
is grateful, 
what I am now is 
what I am now
is all I need
to be: to be
still with you.
