~ Lament ~

by A. L. O'Prunty


Think on us no more
The flower
The beauty of youth
Has forsaken us
Left us waning
And wanting

Time hurried
Rushed through our days
Wormed its way through
Bones and all
Once supple and fair
Age mares
Candle wax faces
And crooked smiles

But wait, wait…
I stand corrected
From self absorbed
My lament;
More beautiful
You have never been
As the heart, ageless
You bare

Time has done nothing
To deminish
Life light
Reflected in your eyes
Your melodic voice;
Sing to me
Of summers past
November rains
And the wisdom
That now reigns
In our remaining days

Sing to me.
