You Are Music

words can't shape
    a container
only the slow
    the lonely blues
sustain a rhythm of time
    able to hold
sweet memory and loss
    bottomless melodies
telling of the irreplaceable
    yet vanished
as I will be
    just like you
nothing much
    and everything




Prompt - Lost Friend - dVerse

  7. Beautifully done - Love the lines:

    only the slow
    the lonely blues
    sustain a rhythm of time
    able to hold
    sweet memory and loss
    bottomless melodies
