Flying Ashes

Flying Ashes

A Poem by Amanda Moubarak

our house was warm
but nothing is ever safe from storms
our fortress had to fall
now the flames are eating it all

pictures lost
made me lose more than they've cost
too much energy
too many memories
all gone in matter of minutes
all lost underneath the wreckage

pictures lost
the only picture left of you
is imprinted in my mind
that one day i'm afraid i won't be able to find
because the mind is a tricky business
each day make you remember less
everything burns and crashes
i'm afraid that one day
your face will fade away
and all that'll be left of you
is flying ashes

oh
pictures lost
and all that's left
is flying ashes
flying ashes

The loss of all wordly goods including the most precious photographs must be devastating. To worry that the memory will fail and that special person's features will fade in time and you will no longer be able to reflect on their image, is sad beyond sad. Much emotion conveyed in this little poem. Left me thanking my lucky stars.
