As the first fireflies
Appear in the night,
They somehow seem
To have lost their light.

I reach to catch one,
And expect you to say:
"You'd better find a jar
Before it flies away."

But as I wait and listen,
I feel my eyes tear
For I know this,
I will never hear.

My heart feels hollow
As I start to remember
That the memories we shared
Are so few in number.

Though you've been there
For all of mine,
My role in your life
Seems a moment in time.

And though our life together
Has come and gone,
The love you showed me
Is my strength to move on.
Just expressing grief, I guess. This started as a modernism poem for my english class, but I realized my grief rhymed and it went from there.
Just wish DA had a text alignment option because some cool visual stuff happened with the stanas, but whatever.
