Are the things you’ll remember,
Not the big things.


Small, small things:

One leaf touched by the sun,

One small smell.

When we are dying,

I promise you,

The memories you will have,

In your last seconds,

Are about these small things

Touching our skin:

One leaf,

One moment with your child.

Not the big things.

We will remember the small things.

These small things are added

To a fulfilled life,

Or not.

Not the big things.
