Time is –
the painter of these walls,
the designer of our interior,
the landscaper of our memories.
I watched as you firmly gripped
onto the fabric of what we once were.
I’m so sorry I can’t be there for you.
Time was better, stronger, harsher,
and the fabric tore apart.
It was never a war,
but it still felt like
Don’t live to mourn what is gone,
Sew anew and let life soar,
Wove each thread with the love
you’ve shown me before,
and sew a new pattern
to adorn your home.
