The winds carry memories
of grief and joy.
They bring words of thought into clarity.
Slumber, the sweet pause that
brightly shines a light on the search for parity.
There is darkness in the light,
dampness seeps in
responding to the pain, bleeding emotions mix.
Like leftover fruitcake, emotions
crumble like sin,
listen closely for latent laughter that sticks.
The sting of loss envelopes the
often without concrete reason or rhyme.
As the days grow into months and years,
joys of days past
soften, the pain slowly ends in time.
Diamonds rock inconsequentially as
a soul is escaping
quietly to the blue skies covering our hearts.
For those remaining there’s a
future for shaping,
lakes reflect beauty as we wade, true healing starts.
