windows open onto a new day
to chase away the shadows
fresh air fills the room
there is light everywhere
the sound of life
reverberates around me
each moment filled with change
time to broaden my horizons



passing by a cemetery
one wonders who is buried there
how long did they live for
do people visit them often

and in passing should we leave flowers
to adorn their head stones
weeping angels and jesus on the cross

some graves if left unkempt
linger on without regret
pictures to remind us who they were
as our memories fade

surrounded by walls
here lies our fate
for it comes too late
