Anchor the Light

days turning endless
sounds seeming hollow
clouds mask the sun
winds wither words

from voices of violence
as time will not stand
or yield to the footsteps
uncaring of love

destinies written
before time began
in the breathing
and breaking of hearts

ours to remember
held in our hands
the unfolding
of memories lost

no refuge or harbor
to anchor the light
to the dreams
of another goodbye
