It seems that all that should be said,
Has been said.
It seems that the tears that must be shed,
Have been shed.
Its seems the mourning that will come to pass,
Is passing.
It seems we have come to terms
It seems our lives have carried on
(As lives do)
It seems you are remembered with a quiet acceptance
It seems the goodbyes have lost their bitterness
Its seems peace has come at last
 
And yet not everything is what it seems
There is that which cannot be said
And the saying of it burdens the soul
There are the tears that will not be shed
The ones that lay heavy on the heart
There is the mourning that will never pass
Its spans the lifetimes
Yes we have carried on, moved forward even
But only because looking back salts old wounds
And reminds us of what is lost
The acceptance is a quiet one
To speak of it makes the acceptance harder
The no longer bitter goodbyes
Have been replaced with tender fragility
And the peace is but submission to the inevitable
 
For you are gone and you will not return
