House plants

My plant died while I was away…
Supposedly impossible to kill
It was a gift,
propagated by a kind soul
and replanted to bring some life
to my new apartment.
I forgot to ask someone to water it
I left it with enough water for a month…
Which was 3 too few.
Impossible to kill.
I, on the other hand,
I’m possible to kill.
It’s a wonder I made it this far.
A quarter century!
1/3 of a quarter century too long,
If you ask my former self.
I’ve replanted myself several times, pulled up roots
Found new soil, kind souls that nurtured me
until I could stand on my own.
I’m possible to kill…
But I haven’t died yet.
