21 Grams

With one last sigh
My soul is expelled
Twenty-one grams
Floating upward, high

I'm light
Effervescent 
Free

Twenty-one grams
That’s all I am
That’s all that’s left of me
I left behind
 My body

Still and unmoving
On the scale
calcuator, pen
The doctor total tell

Unaccounted Weight:
21 grams
