That Which Is - Poem by lyric

in the place no longer home
lives that which i have lost
precious memories

a word she says
a thought i reply
silence deepens

dark eyes sting
tears see not
the light of day

my soul bare
they turn
walk away

moonless night
train whistle fades
what could have been

dreams once
become wrath
bitter wine

wind blows
leafless tree
darkened by rain

in painted leaves
children splash
life lives life goes on
