The Silver Chain

I stumbled on

a photograph

untouched by doubts or the years that hang upon us

I thought it lost

I found you gone

I can’t remember what it felt like to be near you.

  

An empty beach

on driftwood found

from shipwreck scuppered in a golden age before us

a message lost

initials carved

we cast it back to sea and wondered why it found us.

  

I heard a song

that made you smile

do you recall exactly when the laughter left us?

one final verse

there’s no reprise

what seemed eternal wasn’t always what it promised.

  

A silver chain

you hung on me

a cheap memento that was meant to always keep you

although apart

a part of me

I keep it safe until another message finds me.
