How can something so sacred and beautiful be taken away..

For once I believed.
I believed in and cherished what I thought could relieve
The tears streaming down from the eyes of the broken hearted.
There was once a place,
A time where your face
Would light up like the full moon in a starless sky.
When has time passed us by?
As footprints are washed away by the angry sea
The loney whistle of the wind creates an aching inside me.
And as I stare at the stone,
I remember.
I remember it all,
The rise and the fall
Of what I asked God to keep until the end,
The end.
