Smoke

I stand

Alone in the water

Striving to keep it

Below my shoulders
I sing like I once knew 

These waves will carry me away 

To a place I know peace and reassurance 
I smell the fire

That burns deep

Deep in my bones
I see the shadows underneath 

Swimming with lost dreams

Lost loves

But I know they weren’t meant to be

They weren’t for me 
That sweet melody

It rings

My ears taking in the calm

After the storm has passed
We’re laid to rest

And dust we will be once more

Like whence we came 
And we’ll rise to the sky

Like smoke

Burning out like we were made to
We’ll spell out love one last time
