Another year lost.
A heart aches
as longings permeate
hollows of regrets undying.
Heaving winds, haunted whispers,
silvering chimes of a faded song.
The glisten of a promised hope
silhouettes of a pledge divine.
A lover’s aubade, its rising sun
awakens the spirit within.
With teardrops upon her mended quills,
she spreads her silken wings.
