Balloons

I’ll build a brilliant rubber rainbow

from the breath you left behind.

Exhaling it into creatively colored

balloons, eye catching by design.

 

I’ll tie a sting of sentiment

around the fatal final knot.

And by that bond I’ll lead you,

to the peaceful places we forgot.

 

I’ll trod the trails we walked,

conjuring cloudy memories.

Behind my back these phantoms fly,

dancing delightfully on the breeze.

 

I’ll walk until I’m weary,

until your breath breaks from its cage.

The baubles bobbing to the ground,

their vivid vibrancy a bygone age.

 

I’ll build a brilliant rubber rainbow

from the pieces you left behind.

I’ll lay the past to reverent rest,

embrace the future that I find.
