You said you died several times

While I only managed to mildly die once

 

But It helped me to forget about Fear

 

While my body was expanding from all the love and warmth it has generated

 

I was reminded about my living state

 

Filled with blissful joy I cried again and again

 

It felt as the most satisfying thing I had done in my entire life
