And when I die, which is impending, it is of no great sigh.
Stars sometimes vanish, unseen from our sight,
Exploding, and lost forever, spiritual and evanescent,
Entrapped forever within the blackest of nights.
Yet I would wish that some more lasting memory
Might live of how we loved, of how we gathered
Time’s fruits, or how we loved and adored each other
You and you only, and naught else ever mattered.
Somehow the mere existence of our love we shared,
Is written here where humans live and breathe,
It needs no constellations high above, or shining stars,
To mark it, for the truth of purity of dedication, love.
For nothing, neither war, nor famine, nor impending
Destruction, could ever bring our perfection, to a final ending.
Nature works sometimes with irregular strokes, when she paints.
Yet on this day I feel the recompense, memories, dreams
Of skies and colours that flourish beyond constraints.
For me, you will always be the sum of all these things,
Wispy clouds, trees, hills, oceans, and flitting of birds wings.
The tears which endlessly spill into infinite seas without a shore
Debilitating mountains of strength, turning into a wash of debris
A mass of destruction of beauty, of the perfection of all that be
Destroying all that was perfect, true, real, forever, you and me.
