Sometimes I almost forget these weary bones.
Watching children play in the park
Under these old familiar trees.
They help me feel the glow of my youth.
So many years have fallen between that boy
And this ghost I am to you.
It’s a bittersweet closing of the blinds,
Where the sunlight cast upon the world
dims on the inside.
And all the pieces that once made up who you are
Fade with the darkness of each love who dies before.
Look at me.
I’m a lifetime of memories.
Looking back so far, so longingly
At you my darling.
You’re so beautiful in this photograph.
In every moment we ever saved.
And you were beautiful when you said goodbye
3 years ago today.
When you’re young, you never believe the story ends.
That you’ll one day out-live your fairytales
And lay to rest your dearest friends.
Tomorrow was my crutch and it collapsed under the weight
Of all the things I never said before it was too late.
Summer is over and now I feel it in my bones.
Alone in the dark.
Alone in the cold.
The sunlight is a candle
Dieing down in the quiet sky.
Goodnight dear world.
Goodnight old trees.
Goodnight, and goodbye.
