Emily Dickinson

(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Death is potential to that Man


548

Death is potential to that Man
Who dies—and to his friend—
Beyond that—unconspicuous
To Anyone but God—

Of these Two—God remembers
The longest—for the friend—
Is integral—and therefore
Itself dissolved—of God—
