Unaware I stand in the hall,
The curtains carelessly flow.
Certain that I could hear his call,
But denied, for death did blow.
The October sun eternally glistens,
Leaves fall and dance around.
Just wait and listen:
Memories that haunt continue to surround.
Your toxic waste creeps into future time,
Even after a beautiful memorial do you seek,
To thrive in this world, as little as a dime.
No, you will not be forgotten, even though you were weak.
Times have changed and your time has come
Our life together memorable, but more it cannot become.
