Remnants Left Behind - Poem by Heather Burns

A leaf detaching
herself from a tree
strong winds howling
catching in a gale
just won't let her be

A ship sailing on an
ocean
being bashed by heavy
winds
forcing her to dry
land
seeking asylum once
again

Footprints in the sand
leaving behind positive
thoughts
until the tide rushes
in
and everything is lost

Remnants of two lovers
once so young and bold
signatures etched on a
heart
A love story never told.
