Nothing to Say

Nothing to say
Even though you’re here;
Not an airwave
Or a wire
Or even a pen
Or a word as it were.
But a greyness descended.
Our voices have ended.
The music, it echoes
Of laughter’s delight
But the casket is closing
To the silence of
Earth’s long night.
Your shadow grows long
As your tempo slows
And a lump rises in my throat
As I rise early to sing
The song of my someday repose.
Will this glass ever fall
Or will the waters prevail?
Will we again speak
Or will silence swallow us whole
To our final farewell?
