    Ashes of Memories

    When a person dies,
    Many hearts break at that time.
    One, that ceases to exist,
    Dissolving into the universe,
    With the body that held it within.
    And the other, of the loved one
    Who face the forever loop
    Of immortal wave of sorrow.

    Grief isn't subtle, it kicks the gut
    Chokes you, suffocates you.
    Leaves you breathe hard.
    But, is now left alone
    Under a sky full of stars
    That don't seem to shine enough
    Without their favorite admirer.
