A song/poem I decided to write off the back of a few concerns of mine. It was
originally supposed to be entitled 'Requiem' but I wasn't sure if the poem fitted the
criteria for a requiem, so the title was altered to 'Aftermath'


At last the solemn dusk descends
Blessing all with fading light
Much maligned time between day and night
Here it is welcomed like the final breath
That your poor body did elate 
A forgotten storm with
Not a week ago

Now you rest as the household weeps
Silent pleas to some higher
Force than us to make your lungs respire
Though we all know it is in vain
Your spirit has passed on
Breaking your bonds here

So now all are dressed in plain black
Reflecting on your presence
Still felt here in the incandescent
Light reflecting the crystal charm
Hanging near the front window
Greeting all who gather

Though you are gone know that
The gossamer pools next to
The ancient willow tree remain yours through
The lady's last command to us
Before returning to her room
Not to be disturbed

Now crisp twilight takes her guard
Watching over the creatures
That you loved who still cry in overtures
Confused without their master
Milling around without purpose
Like all of us

So sleep soundly in your rest
We shall continue on
Reflecting the wishes of our masters
Shattered now without a
Son to hold on to
Breaking their fragile hearts.
