Only Ashes

Only Ashes

Our final words

Our last goodbye

Sealed with love

Our secret safe in my heart

A perfect entanglement

Seared upon my soul

Forever more

Roses fall on snow


In the colours of love

Pale-faced and trembling

A leaf falls

Crushed by the shadows

A kiss of rain

The salty path of tears

Passing from the dark of night

Shall there now be only ashes?

It was a long time ago

Yet the river flows unseen

Seeking passage

And refuge

In my dreams
