Ashes To Ashes Dust To Dust - Poem by Sam Byron

a fire
slowly dieing out

the embers slowly
turning to ashes
just as my love for you

the cackling of your laughter
forever etched into my memory

the flames gobbling
a new piece of wood
just as your touch
used to

but,
no longer for,
the ashes
have long since
been cold.
