Dedicated to, and influenced by Emily Dickinson:




Their eyes see nothing - of our minds

Or the voices heard inside

As silence sleeps - upon our tongues          

Where the hidden truth does lie -


We spoke belief of destiny - and -

Why our paths - had crossed 

And of the hidden truth - that lies

In the present and the past


That truth is in our silence          

If only they could see -

The words you wrote - upon the page

And place in front of me


Forged by you - Immortally 

These words - to live eternally  

Death will kindly live for you 

To pass beyond - mortality
