Laced with abandon...

Like playing dress-up in the attic
With Aunt Dorothy's hat and gloves...
Not remembering the season
She died in childbirth...
And yet,
Ready to hear the story and pass it
Beyond their years...
To other ages.

Flying Dutchman's sails in
High seas...

Never will the sounds made
Equal my soul's...
When you departed
Me.
