Five Thousand Days by Colleen Keller Breuning

Five Thousand Days


Dawn blooms in red sky

morning chill pervades my soul

frost on the window


Steely clouds loom low

fragile lives hang by a thread

unraveling fast


One final embrace

the warm expanse of your arms

grow cold as March snow


Your spirit soars free

betraying my bargains with

sullen moon and stars


Waves of emotion

strong riptide pulls me under

crashing on the rocks


Empty solitude

as five thousand days slip by

last light fades to black
