Shadows grow long as the days disappear,
The reversal of time heeds its call.
Cold dark nights are upon us,
Each lovers embrace a stark reminder of what once was.
Passing silently in each others arms,
The warmth of yesterday fades into the glowing embers
And the wispy grey ashes of every lost love and the memories shared.
With time diverted and memories now deferred, the hope of tomorrow
Brings the promise of new life, new love and a warm embrace.
