Passing

From the ether to the ether

Born of passion.

Welcomed into life with struggle

Siblings and school, to smart for your own good.

Caught up in the panic and stress

Ripe with fears of abandonment

Never to be reassured

Old with regrets before your time

Unable to adjust, trapped in an ephemeral existence

Dreaming of tomorrow and missing today.

From the ether to the ether

Born to fade, but not from memory

Now you rest in the earth where flowers bloom each spring

Reminding me that we to are fragile.

to be held only in the hearts of those we’ve touched.
