You're in here

inside my heart ,

You've flown away with your Easter wings

risen your soul into the gate of dawn

to wait from above.

Black hearsts circle

the sphere of Mount Hope ,

past the weeping willows

and the shaded oaks .

Gazing into who you were

no longer an earthly form,

do I understand the phase of life

or do I brush the leaves from

the trees that mourn?

Smile down

view my life ,

still transcurrent

this heart of mine.

A time defect

formed deformed,

the trees collect

the dead reborn .

Their presence

of the world unjust ,

fertile soil replenished

into the earth below the dust.

You're in here

inside my heart ,

you've flown away with your Easter wings

risen your soul into the gate of dawn.
