They say what we see
Of shining stars
Is distant death
Like light you fell
The saddest news
We draw our breath

From pain is fashioned
The purest silk
Soliloquy
You made them laugh
You danced for all
The world to see

A poorer place
We rise to know
Within your wake
I hope that from
This world you find
Some peace to take

Vale to one
Who held the world
Within his hand
A loss we feel
As strangers, so
Can’t understand

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
