She Is Ready

She lays in bed

Reflects on the life she has lived 

She smells the bouquet of flowers next to her bed 

The sun kisses her beautiful skin

The shade of a chrysanthemum stone 

She has decided to give in to her desires 

The physical and the spiritual 

She takes the black satin cloth that has been placed over her mouth 

She replaces it with a smile 

She takes a deep breath 

Her body relaxes

Her heart, light as a feather 

She is ready to experience the world outside of her window

She is ready to love the world as it is 

She is ready to accept all that she is
