Should i light a candle for her
or should i light one for me
is it really any different
this death of memory

a desperate search
for photographs
as you dig tunnels
through your mind
you forget the whisper
what colour were her eyes

the acceptance
of the silence
no resurrection
of her smile
to never touch
or feel again
was that her hand
or was it mine


Drawing by Sarah Kirk

so should i light a candle
is it time to say lost prayers
or should i wait until the grave
when i will finally love her
