When Something Fades
There’s a sense of sadness about something that fades
Leaving its memories to join in its death
Will it be possible somehow for it to be saved?
Before it takes it lasts breath
For instance, if love begins to fade
Do you invite the memories to captivate your heart?
If so, did you smile the same way
Since that time they once showed a spark
Or do you just walk away?
Feeling that the love once felt is buried in the past
Knowing that if you stayed
The flame once burned would no longer last
If a field of flowers suddenly spread faded perfumes
Would you only live in the memory of their scents?
Or would you accept that the wind will be taking them soon
To a place where all the other flowers went
If a bird, suddenly broke its strongest wing
Would the skies stop painting paths for it to go?
Or would the skies reflect its memories while it’s raining
Releasing the windows of hope…
Behind everything that begins to fade
Considers strong decisions of letting it go or remain
Perhaps some would agree to just walk away
Never to turn back to see, if life was still within a dying flame
