while I am Emily







.

Show me Eternity, and I will show you Memory -
Both in one package lain
And lifted back again -
Be Sue - while I am Emily -
Be next - what you have ever been - Infinity -

***

Parting is one of the exactions
of a Mortal Life.
It is bleak - like Dying
but occurs more times.
.
To escape the former,
some invite the last.
The Giant in the Human Heart
was never met outside.

~ Emily Dickinson
