not dead yet

For L.J

I live everywhere,
I’m not dead yet.
But when I am,
I won’t be held down

My essence will escape
and though my body will remain
all that matters
would have slipped away.

I’m glad.
It just means,
that I was born to move
and even after life,
I’ll have to go.

Come and pin me down,
I’ll smile when you try.
