Gibberish

The dead are buried, sorrows forgotten
Flowers withered. Lost and gone
Trees chopped down, cities built
Life goes on; no remorse, no guilt

Emptiness sweeps, silence creaks
Once green forest now a barren land
Cries aren’t heard, smiles aren’t seen
Nobody’s worried, the world’s mean

Memories fade, visions blur
Flash back holds no meaning anymore
Paradise seen, walked through hell.
Actors in place, curtains unfold
Words withheld, Stories untold

Arms were strong, respect was earned
Wingless bird travelled all around
Friends were made, laughter shared
Welcomed, fed, loved and cared

Another day, another place
Another story’s taking shape
Bridges crossed, trains missed
Forehead kissed, laid to rest.
