Ophelia

Your heart was shattered

you knew not 

what love did not offer

 

Ophelia

you felt more 

than could be given 

and now you wash upon the rivers

 

Ophelia

your heart was old for your time

your body young could not combine

 

you knew things others

had just pushed aside

and your mind you not take it

not enough time

 

Ophelia

you washed upon the river

the day your heart was shattered

 

But your soul

breathes on the meaning of love

to keep close and not to be left behind

 

when worlds combust

our hearts we must

say feel the love 

for we only have today

 

and with each passing tick of the clock

unless we love

another ophelia will be lost
