I want one tattoo.
A daisy above my ankle.
Why a daisy I hear you say?
What a random thing to pick.
The french word for daisy is marguerite.
My sister's name is Marguerite.
She used to say- when she was alive-
il y a beaucoup de fleurs -
which in English means there are a lot of flowers.
I cannot think of a better way to remember her
than putting her floral namesake
on my body.
So she will always be with me
where ever I go.
And when I look at it
I will remember
Il y a beaucoup de fleurs.
And I will smile.
