Forever Your Ghost

And now, forever your ghost,
Like a song never quite leaving you;
I’ll be your tune, yours only to hear,
By your side as a shadow cast by your soul,
For you to see, for others to riddle,
Raising questions like goosebumps
When you nod in agreement
To the high notes of laughter,
Pearling from the wind like violin strings;
Never quite gone into silence
While tombstones crumble
And oak groves wither and crack,
I’ll walk by you in season change,
Enshrouded in eternal whispers,
To the end of the world, need be;
To follow where no living companion could follow,
Together, we’ll be glorious
