above everything


I wished for death often
but now that I am at its door
I have changed my mind about the world.

It should go on; it is beautiful,
even as a dream, filled with water and seed,
plants and animals, others like myself,
ships and buildings and messages
filling the air -- a beauty,
if ever I have seen one.

In the next world, should I remember
this one, I will praise it
above everything.
