Jul 2011
A diamond side
A needle's edge
Rest upon
The highest ledge

Downward distance
Too far to see
Space between
Reaching you to me

Falling faster
The ground so near
Memories like movies
Joy, hope and fear

No way of resisting
Or changing my fall
Passing so quickly
A lifetime's memories recalled

No chance to pull back
Or in to the side
View from an angle
Love's downward slide

Look backwards and up
A shattered dream fades
No more chances
To change things that remain

No actions determine
No reasons explain
No answers to why
This parting's in shame

Let decisions in haste
Not turn us to hate
May years yet to come
Be filled by the sun

A last gasping breath
One final heartbeat
One glance to the past
Before closing the door
