No Traces

Crooked smiles,
Torn sleeves,
Burnt cookies,
Weathered homes,

Wilting flowers,
Un-mowed grass,
A wagon with a missing wheel,
A sock without a pair,

Days gone by without a sun,
Days gone by without a moon,
A pen with no ink,
A carton of spilled milk,

Several loads of unwashed dishes,
A birthday cake with no wishes,
A stage with no curtains,
A heart with no love,

All the things we know and love,
Have all gone by without a care,
Ruined thoughts and saddened faces,
Imperfect things that leave no traces.
