Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

 

At those times, when memory strikes out at me

and I am in such a mood

that I grieve for myself;

I ask those unending spirits that be,

“What purpose this heart had beat within?”

This and that perspective of mine,

attributed to my wit, long passed,

what genuine mark will survive

when flesh on these bones decay?

What of those, I gave heart and soul

and in return, they gave to me.

Aye, that and that alone survives,

love that I had for you.
