“I am not now, nor shall I ever be,
Sated with this life of philosophy!”
Those were the last words I thought I would hear
Whispered from the lips of the one I held dear.
Then a palpable change settled in the room,
And I wondered aloud, “Could this be our doom?”
And a miracle happened, there before my eyes,
As the body before me started to rise.
Not from some ill-fated ghostly-formed force
No, this was the willingness of quite another source.
Stunned, though I be, as I stood there in wonder,
I couldn’t help but smile at the small clap of thunder.
You see, a storm had been raging outside,
As if in this room, where I gazed full of pride.
She then lay back down, content and enlightened.
With her last words she smiled – “I’ll be chasing the horizon!”
The ashes are all that’s left
Of the woman I loved so dear.
These callused hands once held her close
While these lips whispered in her ear.
Now, I say, I love you.
I will repeat those words every day.
And in my mind, I still hear your reply
Because, it was always that way.
For the kisses you greet me with in the morning
For the ones you give me all day
I thank for with a final kiss of goodnight
When, dear sun, you go away
Throw light into the shadows
Cast your visage to the wind
The long, long night has ended
As the sun does shine again
The waters reflect the beauty
From the peaks of mountains high
The breeze is hush upon the glade
A mirror in Nature’s eye
Snowcaps in the distance
With nimbus clouds above
Surely nothing can compare
A picturesque parade of love
So, this happened today!
