In a moment
In a second
Within time,
You were
And left me behind,
Like a ghost Transparent and lost
You said you’d stay
And yet you’ve not


I am never
i live in your heart,
i am engraved
in your memory,
though no
longer of
flesh and blood
as promised,
but entwined
with your
soul never to
be forgotten.
