All else fades


Here come the winds of change
and takes away everything in its stride
my house in shambles appear so strange
it taunts me and humbles my pride

Yet my home remains unscathed
for I carry it well in my heart
basking in light I gloriously bathe
courage from within that I can restart

The wind whispers then howls
all beauty fades my dear-
to the rivers we become but ashes that befoul
all gold and titles are as empty as the air

All else fades
everything in the world slips our grasp
we only can remove our heart’s barricade
and set our love to the task

All house is naught but sand
All platinum but colored trinkets
We adorn ourselves with such and richly demand
hoping that to our egos it’ll be worth it

Oh how we seek from others such admiration
for the material things our souls care not
How deep is our superficial gravitation
A careless crusade into the dark

All else fades my dear
except for the love we hold
our souls in warm embrace and care
never ending in its infinite connection-behold!
