A Memory Lives

These memories wander in my head

These tears of mine still lingers

Holding on to times once dear

A cloud looms high in this sky

Distasteful remedies make me cry

Unwanted discomforts hide my tries

Butterflies of sighs creeps heavily

To the stomach of unwanted good-byes

A dream, a fainted hope never to be seen again

Gone forever, rested in a sleep

Never to rise yet again

How do you say good-bye to the light of yesterday?

A light that shined so brightly

That once hid the vile of wretched earth.

These tears taint the very soil

For I have indeed lost treasure

yet cannot be retained

To the least memories still live, it speaks, it haunts

Though bones forever be constrained

Within the dust of the naked earth

Shall not those memories be permitted to live?

In someone's eyes

In someone's ears

Or even in a whisper

The words of the tongue passé as wild winds

But its truths of virtue remain eternal

For virtue is the only sword I will carry

Thus till the end will the memory live.
