Lay my shade to rest
Upon no hallowed ground
And quiet the fire within my heart
With but the barest  sound,

I hear your voice
And yearn for more,
I see your smile
I so adore,

I hold you close
But must release,
And in that pause
My heart knows peace,

Your earnest wish
I have attended,
But truth be told
This heart's not mended.

I thought I saw forever in your eyes
But it was just a moment in the sun,
Lovely and warm, deliciously shared
But gone when the day was done.

I know that you've had your say
And I feel I was in your way
But I miss you,

They say that the going gets rough
And you said love just wasn't enough
Still I miss you,

I want to honor your choice
But my heart has found its voice
And I miss you,

So our song remains unsung
And my teeth will meet my tongue
As I go on missing you.

Every night I dream anew,
Then time unravels
And I see you,

I hold you close to never part
Then I awaken
To a broken heart.

With eyes wide open
I am loathe to see
My life entombed
By awful symmetry

Ars Moriendi

Leave the world a little brighter
Find your bliss and lose your fears,
Leave your friends a little wiser
And measure not by span of years.
