Ashes

ashes 2 (2)

The weight of a moment
An essence of man
Surreal, the symbol
Now held within the palm of my hand
Life is fragile and precious
Cannot keep track of all its grains
They slip through fingers
Whisper through my veins

One minute you were here
My mind always saw you there
My eyes say you’re gone
But my heart sees you everywhere

Ashes released into the elements
Flecks of bone blow into my hair
Bittersweet the celebration
Your confetti is now everywhere
