When Letters Begin To Fade

I wish I could find the syllables
to express sorrow;

these phrases
fluttering from my chest
like a thousand fireflies
fighting for some space to glow
for you.

As we turn more silver,
wise, whispered, loving things,
devotion is the only thing gold

that remembers to stay.

I will bring you
every crystal constellation
wrapped in ribbons
of moon-laced shimmer
and if ever you forget this melting;
this affection that lingers
long after letters begin to fade,

take this sweetest lullaby with you.
to sleep,
so that nothing but dreams

separate

two symmetric hearts.
