if only / when i die

when i die

there will be no more bad days
(there will be no more good days, i suppose)

this weight will become yours

this knot will come untied
these strings will come unraveled
these ideas will float away on the wind

maybe some will float back down
maybe some will be found by another

if only i could attach a tag
— my name, how to reach me,
tell me you understand

maybe there would be good days

I posted this in if_only_list, and realized that it probably belongs in here as well. Once I finished it and re-read it a few times, I started to like it more and more. Maybe I will start having more stuff to add to this journal as I participate in the If Only List community.
