Untitled Elegy

How often a spring does pass me by
and shoots away in the blink of an eye

A rose petal lands on my sullen cheek
but all too often I've missed the beat

I've moved along, I've turned away
and losing the beauty of the day,

I walked along the feathered hills
with nose directed at silly frills

of calenders and wasted time
for that was all that was on my mind

A penance for what I hadn't done
A tear for what i hadn't won

A place to go, a thing to do
but with no soul to tie it to

A beauty unnoticed

And when the news had then been sung
i felt as though i had been stung

a stinger, pointed, sharp, of sorts
a finger aimed, with sharp retorts

at what i had been doing then,
of what i'd missed, of what i'd been

i cried a river, lost afar
for i know all the things you are,

and when my sorry eyes had dried
of life, spilt out from my eyes

i saw a million beautiful things
i saw you floating on beautiful wings

the sky, the hills, the land the sea
are no longer the same to me,

And now i sit here all alone
by myself, a lonely one

but i am fine i sit up tall
my back against a granite wall

A man now calmed by seas aloft
that made his old and tough brow soft

a pumiced rock on leathered hands
that once was tamed by weathered lands

And through and through and through and through
the tears turn into ocean's dew

so although i guess this'll have to do
there will never be another you
