Keeping company during
life’s final count
you are memories to me
who stood one balmy evening
just feet away from you.
Death is calling with
chants and promises of years to come
while flies hover over
childhood friendship.
I cannot help you
for you are history and
I am tomorrow.
May the breezes
from gentle memories
caress you on this trip.
