Gone Too Soon

A trail of dreams
Rockets across the azure sky,
Leaving hopes
Dashed in its wake.

A tear starting down
A loved one's cheek,
Leaving pain in its place.

A blazing light
Gone too soon,
Leaving emptiness
Inside of us.

Death should not come
For the young,
Leaving us alone
And in pain.

by Michele Elaine Wilson 1997
