Our Destiny

I pass those old pine trees in the park often, where we liked to just lay talking- holding hands; I stood frozen when they lowered your coffin, now just a sad girl with tangled hair who stands. You would so love it this year my darling, everything is quite green and lush and serene; there is a bird song- oh, it is a starling _ this destiny I could never have foreseen.
