Almost Everything Goes Away

Almost everything goes away

I’ve collected all your hearts
And followed through as best I could
But all of you are gone now, save a few
Like gorgeous drops of dew you fade, and I will too

Almost everything goes away

You ride on the crest of a new thing
And when it fades
It leaves an echo

But love is always watching
It can rise but cannot fall
All echoes are included
Channels where we live forever
Watching with a tenderness we barely knew.

Gary Justice, September 2012.
