Jostles of colors soon to fade back into the breathless land
Enraptured by the sudden life that envelopes me, I pause.
Aromatic breezes bring me the scents of my childhood
Nestled in my hands is the vessel that contains my heritage.
I offer to the winds the memories and dreams of a life   
Not quite completed; Not quite finished.
Ending here in the place you loved. 
Blossoms of ash merging into the sand.
Days numbered of both sorrow and joy
Ended in a shroud of acceptance
Holding onto the thoughts of unknown tomorrows
And the remembrance of love that never fades.
Rest here under the vaulted sky in the place that held your soul.
Time for you has stilled and it is only me that now mourns.
