Jisei = Japanese Death Poem in Tanka form – dVerse challenge

No longer breathing
But still you live for me
Heart no longer beats
I see no vibrant color
In this silk closed box.

Lips and eyes closed
Remember the good I did
Among the living
Bury me not with you, love
Let me love you til the end.

Thanks, Gayle of dVerse for the challenge it was complex, but inspirstional.
