Still Here

It is still here in our tired smiles –
mouths fighting gravity in search of simple
pleasures, that old innocence of shared
laughter and sweet companion tears shed
in common sympathy – our soul shelter from the
cold that creeps
into every heart,
that dirty liar who whispers still we stand and fall alone.

I ll the wind that causes dreams to
V anish one by one.
E ach of us could grieve apart and
R ue the day they're born. But
Y ou and I know better. Together we are one.
