Lost Hope Upon the Wind

-

The sweeping wind lingers,

Beneath a sky filled with stars

Fading away quietly

As the placid calm soon echoes

Soft murmur from fallen hearts

Aching with sorrow silently.

-

From the beginning, first to last

Each moment, precious and held dear.

Eternal sweetness left in the past

A pain burning so far, yet so near.

-

One last gaze to a path now gone

Dream fragments impossible to find.

Words and wishes forever undone

Simple smiles soon left behind.

-

A goodbye to vanishing stars

A single memory spinning away

No tears to stain fallen hearts

Only lost hope upon the wind…
