Goodbye

As the sun sets down on Dublin bay its dying rays meets the cross of the Celt,
in Bridget's old churchyard where love once tread, dark shadows cast out a net to be embraced by a weeping willow,
final bursts of solar light end the day captivating two Gaelic hearts etched in bark pierced with a arrow,
a remembrance stone engraved RIP dies out in the light that fades haunted by ghosts from a past life...

    meaningful and sad and sounds like nostalgia from a relationship that had ended
