A White Winter Hymn

by pacific


What is this I see?

The shimmer of years yet to be,

The draping of a quilted sight,

The flaking hope on a snowy night.

A sea of mist sprung from your lips,

The intonation of your tender quips.

Floating in the dimming light,

Through spotless patches of brilliant white,

Brings to mind a song that I once knew,

The sacred breath that you once withdrew,

The forgotten words of an ancient rune,

The whisper grows into a deafening tune.

But the voice is still askew,

With the winter sun, now removed.

I reach out to steal your breath,

But it duly seeps through.

I reach out to grab the view,

But i can’t, i sit bemused.

For the life of me,

I can’t recall you.
