Poems: Elegy



November 11, 2004


I am sitting by your side

Around us, sickening branches claw the sky

The tower is shrouded

In her thick, grey shawl


Light is fading slowly

And I perceive new shadows amidst the fog

Our silence is broken

By nothing at all

The path leads beckoningly

Onward through the gate


The bell tolls for you or me

Time has come to leave here

Rest a hand against the cool stone for just a moment longer

Before looking to myself –

I am sitting by your side

And you are not moving
