The Gift

If I die today
don’t miss me I’ve had a wonderful life
and even if it finished abruptly
I’m so happy to have lived it
and now depart.

I had to die one day anyway
and today is a good day
like any other.

There were things I wanted to do,
and important words to say,
but, I guess,
I won’t have the opportunity.
Not in this life anyway.

Now I’m gone
and what is left is space,
empty,
that I’m leaving for you.

This space, that I occupied in your life,
wether big or tiny, is my gift to you.

I wish you to use it well.
Let it be the most fertile soil
and a breath of new life
for what’s the most meaningful
for you to emerge.

I’ll keep sending you rays of eternal love and joy
from wherever I’ll be next.
There’s no need to miss me.
Just enjoy the space.
