At the Lake

warm summer sun
caresses youthful skin

a gentle breeze
awakens inner truth

early morning melts
into late afternoon

worries at bay
as we rejuvenate

cool crisp water
cleanses our souls

side by side
we lie together

a perfect moment
a perfect day

lost in time
only a memory

now i stand
cold and alone

with your ashes
in my hands

ashes to ashes
dust to dust

i release you
to drift away

now and forever
at the lake
