Sum

I am footprints in the snow
waiting the thaw and fading in the melt
I am footprints in the sand
waiting time and tide to disappear
I am crystal breath in the icy air
dissipated and forgotten
I am the discarded toy, once beloved
cast aside in thoughtless disregard
I am the single raindrop
vanishing in the sun’s gaze
I am the fleeting dream
erased in the morning light
I am the faded photograph
past recollection at the bottom of the drawer
I am the rusted sculpture
bygone tribute in a fallow field
I am the solitary crow
lonely caw of anguished defiance
I am the echo of days gone by
scattered to the winds of time and memory
I am the unwritten word
not heard nor read nor thought
I am the final chord in the last song
evanescent reverberation in the dying hour
