Farewell To Time
Farewell to Time
By Uriah Lee Hamilton
Empty-handed at heaven’s gate,
I have nothing to give,
No reason to live,
I’m just lingering in the shadows
Of yesterday’s vague dreams of happiness
That today are a deluge of heartaches and regrets
Impossible to swim.
My one and only friend,
We are both forgotten in a lonely day
Where flowers delicately prepare
A pretty grave after so many mistaken breaths
That were meant as kind advice and loving thought,
A bouquet of friendship or a perfumed handkerchief of empathy
But it is now only words of inconsequential nonsense
For a life sadly misspent without returns
Or any evidence of a worthy existence.
Farewell to time
And the tears
No compassionate brow or cheek.
