I knew I lost him

the wailing had caused

the earth to move.

He will never come again

so short this life.


Like a friend

the sorrow stays

our yesterday is past.

It’s easy now to look back

On hello and goodbye.


I refuse to take it tragically

living no matter

how many skies have fallen.


Nearly eternal

true love

stands in the fire.
