Remnants of you settling inside
A cymbal crescendos a cataclysmic silence
I hear you breathe
A heavy cold dust of breath
Warming my fading memory
Fragmented remnants of you
Shattered, scattered into whole pieces
No longer able to find their way again
I am left with the hour glass' sand
Holding the moments shared
Now seeping through my hands
My knees beg the earth
With uncertainty
A Western star shines ashore
Glimpses of a partial soul that once whole bore
Forever's more
