The rain is pouring down but I dont feel it. I dont feel anything anymore.
but pain and an agonizing emptiness. I knew this day would come, from
the moment I met her I knew well part one day but this day still came too
soon. Way too soon. I wasnt ready to loose her; I dont think I ever will be.
The world doesnt change much in almost 100 years. Wars is fought, battles lost
and won, people is being born and die
nothing changes but names. Names and
She kept me together, together and sane. Wrapped in her love I was never lost
and always where I wanted to be. God, I miss her so much it hurts. I feel like
my heart is breaking into a million pieces; like glass being shattered on the
I close my eyes and for just a moment in time I think back; I remember.
Remember her laugher, her smile, her eyes always filled with love just for me,
her kindness and compassion
. her innocence which stayed with her all through
All my dreams were with her. She was my dream
now I have nothing left. Dust in
the wind. All whats left is dust in the wind.
If I could bring her back I would no matter the price. Ill do anything to just
hold her a moment longer
just a few more seconds
just one more kiss
need her so much
Everywhere I go I see her; I remember. Any brown-haired girl I see I have to
look at her face to assure me it isnt my love. My beloved
Marie. All I ever
did was for her. All for her. All I am, all Ive become is thanks to her. She
saved me, brought me home. Without her Im lost, drifting aimlessly at sea. A
ship without its captain, a star without its light. For she was my light
she was the light of my heart.
. dreams doesnt buy her more time, nothing can do that
anymore, not even me, no matter how much I want to. I can defeat all; all but
the enemy who took her from me; Death. She is the only one I never could
defeat. Not for others anyway. Me? I live forever. I have to Goddamn live
forever! Without her. I can imagine no crueller torture. An eternity
her love. Lost, cold
I cry but the rain washes my tears away. Ive reached the edge of the bridge
Im walking on and take forth the small crystal jar, which is all Ive left
now. I can understand her reasons; all her adult life she was denied touch. I
never touched her save to heal her
though I did steal a few kisses that sent me
So I understand why she wanted to be burned and not put in a coffin. Her skin
was her prison; she was already in a coffin. She wanted to feel something
against her skin, even the licking of flames. Now, theres only one thing left
. setting her free forever.
. I cant. I cant let go. I know shes gone. Logically I know this
heart refuses to believe it. If not the doctors had held me back I wouldnt
have allowed them to burn her in the first place though I had given my word to
her that her wishes would be followed. But she had looked so peaceful. Like an
Angel asleep. How could I let them hurt her?
This agony I feel inside, this pain beyond belief which is tearing me apart
is this the price of love? I should have known itd come to this. Pain; always
pain. Though for her
.for her Ill take any pain, any agony
everything I have to give. My life, my soul, my heart, my love
.I laid them all
in her hands, safe in her small gloved hands.
All my tears are nothing but drops in an endless sea. All my years are nothing
but seconds in an endless row of years, of eternities. If only she was here
with me to ease my pain and wipe away my tears. If only
I fall to my knees on the cold, wet ground and cry so hard I feel I shall die.
I double over and feel like Im choking. I cant still be alive. No one who
feels this much pain as I do can survive
. yet I do.
I hug the crystal jar close to me and the rain and my tears make it shine. Like
if her light still shines on me even if just for a second. Gods, I miss her. I
miss her so much. Please
please, bring her back to me
please, I need her
love her so much. I dont know how to go on without her
No, don't hang on
. Dont. Just let go. I have to let go. Nothing lasts forever
but the earth and sky. Everything is slipping away
Dust in the wind. All we
are is dust in the wind
I force myself to my feet and lean over the edge of the bridge. Its really a
beautiful spot with trees, clear blue water and the mountains in the
background. Shell have loved it.
I fight tears as I force myself to open the lid on the crystal jar
flies to the wind.
Farewell, beloved. Farewell. No one could have loved you more than I did
Ill always do till my dying day and beyond.
Rest easy now, darlin. Find peace
and wait for me to join you so I can keep
the promise I gave you so many years ago
. Ill take care of you
far longer than that.
As I leave the bridge dust flies in the wind.
Everything is dust in the wind.
Everything is dust in the wind.
