Swan Song Lane

When the time is right
one again will walk with you unaided
in an eon of age,
where promises are made
not to conform to life’s illusions.
Only now this earthly spirit
will not last forever,
the journey has been long, now weary,
and this pen is spent
needs to fade
into one’s own mitigation.
Yet your smile your poetry
one will gladly hold dearly
with in one’s heart forever,
as life blends with in
one’s terminal sunset
before methodically melting
into the golden horizon!

    Absolutely beautiful! "[...] the journey has been long, now weary,/ and this pen is spent/ needs to fade/ into one’s own mitigation." Great lines! Ruben.
