we were walking in the sun
scent of lavender at play
blue eyes young and beautiful
hand shading your face

i can almost smell the leaves now
brittle fingers twist & curl
the breath of summer turns to whisper
and the dimming of the days

many years from this moment
when all the stars shiver gray
all we know will swirl and darken
spinning slowly to decay

there'll be no one left to mourn us
no one to watch our children grow
all we've touched will be forsaken
scattered dust into the rain
