For You


The ripples are fading

In the murky waters

A dream so dear

Cannot go on forever


Is that shivering light

Within the cold of night


What is done and forgotten

Lingering still

Are the words

Long ago spoken.


Fate, if you will believe

Of all the choices

Revelations held in my hand

You never did notice

Only to finally



For you

There is no looking back.
