Frozen moments

Fear-scratched and deep

Etched far

Beyond the eye

Reminders kept

Not careless lost

At random

Washed away

A testament

To those we hold

The lives we sought

To touch or sow

In sepia tones

A clouded destiny

Sinks deeper still

Within the hardening shell

Soft pleading eyes

Their colours lost

Cry out to

No-one now

And flailing arms

At memories cling

An image not

To be forgot

As coded pathways

Crumble from sight

And ciphers

Drift from thought

Moments frozen

In our eyes

We carry to

Their end.
