Elegy for a lost love
The silence fills the cracks of words not spoken.
It’s easier to leave these things broken.
But what we neglected in these many days,
cannot be replaced in the simplest of ways.
There is no way to mourn all that we have lost
No heartfelt lament could reconcile the cost
A love left to wither and die in the sun
Dust covers the form of my lost loved one
I remember the start, our youthful spring glow
Love so young and fresh could give flowers a show
I was grateful for the time and your hand in mine,
And a walk to the altar, the day our lives intertwined.
And when all the worry finally took its toll
When we cashed in our character, sold our souls
and gave into Words and actions irrevocable
Until we were no longer two halves of a whole
My heart reacted to your words implied
As you grew lofty as the parting waters of low tide
Your heart just couldn’t handle the weight of the strife
So you drifted back to sea and out of my life.
Now I’m faced with the notion life will never be the same
And left with your memory, echoes of your name
The one bit of solace that can still make me smile
Is knowing that you were mine, at least for a while.
