Orphan Castle

Orphan Castle

 

How about

Just two of us

Sitting in the sun

Wondering

Where the day has gone

Letting the light move us

Like pawns

Across a chessboard of sand

And water

 

You were a son

I was a daughter

 

We are now orphans

Parents, lovers, friends

And maybe grandparents

Someday

Before the story ends

 

The waves come up

To say good-bye

The birds walk

Then run

Then finally fly

 

We talk about things

We (always) never knew

We talk

About what we are going past

And through

 

Both of us

Each of us

Just us two

 

Sometimes

When you twine your fingers

Right through mine

I feel the solar system smile

And shine

Centuries of time and space

All the history between us

In your eyes

Where it won’t un-erase

Moving in lines

Across your kind face

 

This is enough

You know that it is

We are lucky

For every second

 

Lucky for the rough waters

And the stormy winds

Lucky for this one sunny day

As our last chapter ends

 

And our next one begins
