Candles on a Birthday Cake

Chapter Text

You tried to say goodbye, but still
the hole you left behind was deep:
those unspoken words crying
like the cloudy songs
of the sky above, the sun lying in wait
for the morrow, where happier hearts will smile
towards it

But today, it leaves us with the sky a grey
to mourn for this loss: this tragedy
we could not avoid.
