The Last Architect

The Last Architect

Within his arms I am kept whole 
Echoes of my pain resonate 
He holds me close; he quells the hate

Catching each tear he makes a mold 
Refusing to let go, he waits 
Holding tighter, defying fate

Each piece he joins; those that life stole
Breathing strength through me, I exhale 
His hold still firm; my heart still frail

Splintered shards fused; a complete soul 
I stand once again and breathe life 
Once more his lover, friend, and wife

Within in his arms I am kept whole 
Catching each tear he makes a mold 
Each piece he joins; those that life stole
Splintered shards fused; a complete soul


A dedication to the Architect I married. The only one; The Last one.
