Ashes to Ashes – Halee Isil Cosar

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Nothing disappears
From the earth ‘s crust

Every erased answer
Will leave a mark

Every drop of blood
a stain

Every wound
Will leave a scar

Every joy
a smile

Every shooting star
Will leave a light

Every barbaric yelp
an echo

Every sadness
Will leave a silence
Every memory
A reverie

Doesn’t true love
Embroider itself forever in our hearts
The way we feel his scent
Long after the lover departs
The way a flower blooms
Long after the rain
The way earth still tremors
Long after she quakes

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Every bit of ash, every speck of dust
Will settle somewhere on the earth’s crust
