These Everlasting

"inspired by The Ravyn's death, may she rest in peace"

(These Everlasting)

…Then one day you may find
These words are
What remain of me…

Jammed in your throat,
Dissolved in your tears,
Buried with your grief
And cremated with the trash…

…Then one day you may find
These words are
My love for life…

Salvaged by your strength,
Sung to our children by your tender voice,
Fostered in every place we called home,
Unleashed to another space
And found its way again
Into your heart…

dark and pretty....nice
But there's so much time
I will wait for you
Growing love but like water
Time will always slip through
I will wait for you
But please come soon

I like a poem that parallels itself. Two sides of the coin.

Beautifully written.
"Born into
these crooked ways.
I never even asked to come,
so now I'm living in the days.
I struggle and fight
to stay alive,
hoping that one day
I earn my chance to die..."
