Sway to the bittersweet ballad
of beautiful things coming to an end.
The melancholy of joy intermixed with sorrow
Parting from a presence that will never leave you
Saying goodbye to yourself
Move to the beat of impermanence,
tears of joy in a static embrace.
The safety of love, the warmth of pain
lodged in your heart
with each beginning and every end.
