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
