I hope the trees and flowers have made time for you
and the proper attention is being payed
because you have done things too courageous
and greedy
for me to comprehend
and when I see your name I smile

we share directions
live vertically
and fluctuate our emotions
though you chose a permanent ending
and mine will remain sweet and ongoing
but when I see your name I grin

i fear bleeding as you do
and seeing as much red as you have
but dear sylvia
show me your inspirations
because when I see your name I giggle
