Dearest heart that had been lost,
I have not seen you for some time.
The rays of sun that light the dust.
Will make for joys that reach sublime.
In the journey long since tread.
On the road that never ends.
The feelings of impending dread.
Seemed to be around each bend.
Lost in time a simple key.
Seemed too far for me to grasp.
I could not live with all the guilt.
And shame that hissed just like an asp.
I floundered in the desert of wastes.
Scorched by unforgiving stars.
Beat by beasts and men alike.
We could not grasp just what was ours.
I dare not name the deeds gone by.
We could not find a way to breathe
And living also seemed a chore.
And some of us now gone.
I miss you, S.S.
