Haunt me not with thine unspoken words,
As we lay down in sleep upon this broken ground.
Where once was sung long breaths of hope and love,
Now only a stream of silence flows.
I miss thine hand upon this brow,
So eager to stroke such worries away.
Wither hast thou gone?
Out beyond a sea of living moments.
Young and old can only imagine,
The walks thine feet now flee to.
I have been left upon this soft grass,
Watering each blade with my tears.
Beneath the waning moon I lie,
And wait for mine own feet to follow thee.
