The shadow cast


There in the light

The glistening dew of tears

The salty waters fall

Into shallow moments

Passing so quick

Too quick

To the roots of all

Sorrow there

as the wind invisible is there

Between the limbs and branches

This glorious sadness

Forever to grow

For the seeds were sewn

An eternity ago

Rest now upon the light

The eternal and sorrowful sight

Brought forth in pure delight

For sadness is pure

It is forever in the roots

The endless cycle of day and night

Be it ever so bright

For eternal a day

Is eternal a night

There in the shadow cast

May the memories last

And rest
