Remember

Apr 29, 2016

Remember when

The raindrops splashed

Tracing down your face like tears

And you would take my hand

Promising more days, more years?

Yet now, underneath the winter ground,

Your hands lay clasped, to your chest bound.

Remember how you used to be?

Remember when

Your song would make us smile,

Your eyes all light

And full of life?

But then, one came for you

Like a great bird, it took you.

Remember how we used to be?

Remember when

You used to laugh

Counting clouds

And make a wish

That wish never came true.

Now your name is on a stone

And ivy covers your fragile ground.

Remember how things used to be?
