The Loss

How it lasted,
How it went.
Should we consider
What was spent?

Even birds
And the bees
Make mistakes
And lean on trees.

What have I
That allows
In what's allow'd?

Fickle wish,
Hot desire.
My teasing mind,
What I admire.

I wander,
I chase myself:

Death causes me
Not to turn,
But embrace.
I again yearn.

Loving arms
Calling me.
I search for them,
But can't see.

Without sight,
Blindly moving.
No more flight:
I am lost.

How it lasted,
How it went.
More than just living
Life was spent.
