Forgotten Eve'

Silence, deep remembrance,

Cloak the shadows of the eve'

And forgotten icy memories,

Stain upon the silver horizon.

A depth without beginning,

Creeps within a frosty breeze,

An emptiness without end,

In an eve gone to sleep.

And lo' the shallow trickle,

Of the constant sparkling waters,

And lo' that shallow lifelessness,

Within your time-torn eyes.

Yet deep within an ember burns,

As a faded tiny star,

Upon this long forgotten eve',

Within a lost forgotten heart.

-Rebecca Suzanne Zimmerman
