If our story were a book

If our story were a book

The title would be your name

The author: me

Some things must remain


The first chapter: before

All the rest: my quest for more

For more life, for more love

Searching for truths to hold above


The other chapters: empty pages

Testiment of all you took away

My beliefs, my conceptions, even the way

I saw the world


And from time to time: pain

17 chapters, the number of years you lived, Ed

I’ve now lived longer even than you

I cannot find the pen to start writing anew


All else leaves, the ink flows away

With the dewdrops of each passing day

Nothing I hold onto remains


I try to fill these blank pages with new words

And new thoughts

But the last page will always be yours
