Sanctum

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…

Somewhat saddening

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?
