Piece by Piece

Piece by piece
The lines of regret
Take their place

Soft and slow
The patience of time
On my face

In my limbs
These strange aches and pains
Haunt my sleep

Failing flesh
All of the secrets
I can keep

Into age
Falling like snowflakes
Winter storm

Feel decay
Whisper its promise
Be reborn
