TATOO

Do not stare at my receding back
with eyes full of tears.
I am not gone.
I am never away from you.

I am the reflection in your eyes.
I am the diamonds at the end of your lashes.
I am the lotus that stays inside the water.

Do not stare at my receding back
with eyes full of tears.
I am not gone.
I am never far away from you.
