#TenderTuesday . . . When the time comes




I pray that when I die,
no-one waxes lyrical
about the quality of my skin
for my age.
I pray that no-one
compliments my corpse
on its great condition.
I want everyone to remember
the way I showed my face to the sun
without care for lines
and how I used my body out,
every minute of every day
in the most beautiful
and fun-filled ways.
I am not here to preserve
I’m here to live.
And my body will tell that story well
when the time comes.
