Fragments

The house is cold,

Although the central heatings on 

Old pictures on the wall

Do not tell that you’re gone.

We shared our lives together

Never thought the time would come

Marching in our sorrow 

To the dull beats of a drum 

‘Tomorrow wait for me’

At your side, in death, my place

Holding on forever,

Entwined in loves embrace.

Your face within the mirror

Drapes shadows in my eyes

Those lights that burned so brightly

Have flickered and demised.

Distance shall not part us

In life you will remain

Held inside my heart

Where death has no domain

Back
