Eternally Absent

the trees
stand exposed in the 
dusk of our hour

beckoning me 
to see beyond
the ache of an absence
yet to come

pillars of strength
they call out to me

their branches
dancing in harmony

was it only
yesterday that your laughter
echoed in the hallways
of my heart
as you placed 
your hand in mine

innocently pulling me 
towards a future

not to be

i must

release you

return you to that place
from where you once came

where the sky
is a fireball of foreverness 

absent from my world
but alive in another
you will rise

 in the sun and the moon and the stars

dancing in harmony
with my forest of trees
