Sharon’s Song

Here, at the end of all time and reason
In the limitless fog of life
I can stand at last and say
I loved this man. It is finished.
With mist lapping at my ankles 
Like the swirling of a skirt
All the times we fought and loved
Raced onward to the end of everything.
All lies in ruins at my feet.
Below me – light dawns before me –
For all that is below me, beneath!
My outstretched arms to embrace
Life anew, as mists ebb away 
And reveal a beginning, 
A new day and reason to live anew.
