Hand

Hand

The hand within
         the hand
once held
         now gone
long gone

Light of the day
         folded into
the night sky

Such are
         the deeds of love
done and undone
         the eyes an ageless hue
the kiss distant
         a promise unkept
the clutch of cool arms
         the siren song
and then silence
         and then nothing
