Taken

Another day has passed me by Taken gently, by the falling sun, and the starry sky Leaving stiletto barbs that heaven will hone tonight Today disappeared As a slim gray ghost that has been taken away I never thought to say goodbye... It seemed but one of many days That come and go But then a flickering shadow of bare boughs A certain wind that blew Curling brown leaves around my feet As if to remind me This was a phantom day A slim, gray, ghost, That never will pass my way again My thoughts had other needs today And reckless .... was I.... I never thought to say goodbye...
