The Wreath pt. 1

Through a window peer pilgrim  eyes
Which well knew Love's most blessed scars
And once had danced 'long side the sun
So many years a'past...

Yet emptied now but of some sliver small
Of Mercy's cursed remembrance,
Mocking, soothing, the balm of ghosts
Which ne'er shall breathe again...

Tho still they search,
Thus questing, live-
For hark! Some glimmer forms,
And fleshes bones of what then was...

But nay-as quickly born that light retreats
To the vales of Far-away...
As naught now crowns that moment's transit
Save the heart's stark vacant throne.

And so to saddened reverie
Return old eyes to loving glance
'Pon all the used-to-be-
Then a lone and fragrant tear for all the never-was...
