Sit alone in solemnity
I wonder with gaze averted
The small portrait of a face no longer for this world
Smiles as you held my brother and me
Raised us, higher than the skies to where I now look
The stars dim as my dreams sit bright in the night sky from below
No questions of these hopes I had shared with you in secret
Every night we wished to see tomorrow, together
Life is not a measure of time but the distance that grows between people
Consciously immeasurable and…
Delightful days pass in an instant
Bloom fragile and wilt dreadfully
Leaving me to wonder, what was it that I was looking for in the sky?
Was it still my dreams or hoping for signs that you were still somewhere?
