I felt the passing of someone I loved
Spoken within me
As a powerful voice
To which I can put no color.

In that deep night
When grief came closer
I knew a different world
Was upon my breaking heart.

"Soon" was the word spoken
As the whole of a life
- an endless well of love and hope
- this flame of three -

In that deep night,
I doubt even starshine
Could have fallen upon the Earth
To be my hopebringer.

And so this flame of three evaporated
And all thereafter
Became coldness.
