A Song Lingers There

A shelf, covered in dust
A song lingers there
Her heart will sit for spells
Eyes cast upon his chair
The pain and agony
Diminished with his breath
She thought she had prepared
But not so, Come sunset
Give me back my sunshine,
a whispered voice demands!
But he lies beneath the earth
Where tears of her still land
His stories of delight,
A gift her heart enfolds
Two jars of honey shared with thee,
 Twas not so long ago,
Her comfort is his memory
The years of planting hope!
Sometimes, she still can feel,
Soft skin of pastel strokes
He shadows in with peak of morn,
to keep her company and,
His breath comes dancing, dancing,
‘Just out of reach’
As she extends her hand…
