Ash and Bone

September 19, 2010

You turned to ash and bone,

Became a shadow of the night,


And left me here alone.


You are buried now, beneath a stone,



Nevermore to see the light,
You turned to ash and bone.



By my own hand, how you did moan,




Never did put up a fight,
And left me here alone.




The shadows came to take their own,





Of you again I’ll never see the sight.
You turned to ash and bone.
I reap the seeds of what I’ve sown,





How gently you faded to the final respite.
And left me here alone.





My actions now I need to own,




Because of me your soul took flight.
You turned to ash and bone,
And left me here alone.
