Mentioned less and less as one reads the story of a life
The first time you cried
The first time you laughed
The scent of lilac still reminiscent
Of the time you first experienced death
And watched someone lowered into the ground.
The tears that then stung your face
Come more slowly
You turn the page and they're gone altogether -
Hidden behind a mask of indifference.
build a wall around yourself
So no one can look in
The child inside you
Still loving without holding anything back
So quiet now, no one can hear it
The world becomes
Sunrise and sunset continue on;
How long has it been
Since life was exciting?
You can't remember -
The chapter is closed.
