O Certainty

Where are you

That yesterday sweetly

Held me in your arms?

Yesterday no longer in my reach,

As a distant age,

You are now as the warmth of summer

Surrendered to the chill of autumn.

Once so real seeming

Now ephemeral as a dream;

A ghost dispersed

By a gentle yet harsh breeze –

Your face

Now hidden by a misty veil;

Your voice

Silenced by the whisper of trees

Moved on a cold air.

You scurry away from me

Like a timid creature

Scared of a Hell unseen.

O Certainty

Where are you

That was never there:

Here no longer?
