Haze and mist
that you once belonged with me
but angry foam and sea
says this
that it could not be

Is this just fairy tale
is this a fancy
or am I simply dreaming
a reality that once was around me

Hesitant, yes
for I am rarely blessed

She was once here
warm and near
but that was long ago
faded upon yesteryear

Melody and Rhyme
distant through time
and I 
alone, hesitant, and silent
weeping alone upon a wearied stone
and this is my only recourse

Memory, chilled and gray
But memory that has yet to fade
Be with me

    An excellent Elegy. Simplistic and hauntingly peened. Peace always, John
