I do not know

if you smiled when you were dying

or cursed your friends

for the little attention we paid you of late

or how you spent your last full hour alive.

I do know that I was saddened when I heard the news.


because you gave yourself to me once

without invention or restraint,

for that I still remember you

and love you.
