She was the first to change color
and release from the branch.
Peaceful.
Graceful.
Floating.
and then, oh so still.
My sorrow is heavy
with its ebb and flow of the tide.
The water's gentle kissing
and then, oh so still.
Peaceful.
Quiet.
A moment.
The mist is heaven meeting earth.
A crisp morning
and others have joined you.
Sadness and joy...
knowing you once rested here.
Silence.
My tears.
My heart.
and then, oh so still.
