A glint of sunlight
A breath of air
A song of sorrow
A girl so frail
A man so kind
A woman so neat
A brother so caring
A sister so sweet
The glint disappears
The air ceases to stir
The song fades from the ears
The girl gives a purr
The man hugs her close
The woman kisses her cheek
The brother holds her hand
The sister’s just as weak
Sunlight through the window
Air perfectly still
Sorrow holding its breath
Frail determined by will
Kind is against the world
Neat cannot overcome
Caring as rare as a man with wings
Sweet is on the run
Disappearing, the mystery
Stirring the soul
Ears pricked for love
Purring a sound of gold
Closeness can change the world
Cheeks are meant for kisses
Hands are meant to hold each other
Weak are only evil misses
Glint, breath, song, and girl
Kind, neat, caring, and sweet
Disappear, stir, fade, and purr
Hugs, kisses, hold, and weak
A world where feeling mix
And everything is hard to fix
And everyone doesn’t care
But wait your mind is playing tricks
The glint of sunlight isn’t there
The breath of air is a gust
The song of sorrow is a wail
The frail girl is strong she must
The kind man is cruel you see
The neat woman is a mess
The caring brother leaves her behind
The sweet sister lay to rest
A disappearing glint
A gust of air
A wail of sorrow
A girl strong yet frail
A cruel kind man
A messy woman so neat
A leaving brother cares
A dead sister so sweet

The Good: WOW!!!!  This was cool! Reading it was like going to a house of mirrors - you could never really tell which images were real.  Great job!

The Bad: It is a tad confusing, but isn't that the point?

The Random: The ears pricked and the purring made me think of a cat.  Which is random. lol
