Graveyard

It was not sorrow that brought me here
nor sadness beguiling me to Hades
but it was a graveyard all the same
a graveyard full of dandelions

The strands flew as I breathed
like hope on my fingertips
yet they sprung back to life
as I mourned the death of my soul

Like ashes piling up on ashtrays
it was the urn of my feelings
and I would pave my way back to you
starting from this very graveyard

I knew waiting was not my forte
and never could I walk away
so I would do my best holding on
as one more day was already a blessing

I could make this place our sanctuary
with dandelions blooming on the first day of spring
if only you would overlook the darkness
and believe in my dreams for once
