What Could Have Been

Smoke rises from embers gently burning,

Exciting heartbeats, ever yearning,

Fingertips drumming on hollow wood,

Reasons being, understood,

Coffin lid and coffin nail,

Follow the twisted, lazy trail,

With eyes of deepest bittergreen,

Welcomes bidden, yet unseen,

Then turn away in sad lament,

Forever recalling time unspent.
