I miss you Dad

I miss you Dad

Leafless trees
branches entwined
clutching at the wind.

Lifeless eyes
a hallow embrace
clutching at my heart.

Mirthless tears
pouring down salt
into my wounded soul.

Listless eyes
turned quickly away
by my haunted essence.

the trees
seem to mourn
the passage of a season,
while I
Morn the passing
of a gentle man of reason
