Suddenly A Memory


His encounter with
life so brief

As the sun warmed
the waters he
was gone

A mist evaporating
into the air

As if a leaf caught
in the wind
carried him away

Before my eyes he
vanished

Suddenly a memory
of yesterday.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
