Ash to Ash

Now it’s here…
now it’s gone

Now you have it…
now you don’t

What seems so simple
is so hard to grasp

that what has been given
shall be taken away

A life
A love
A breath

A hope
A dream
A touch

Be true, be gentle, be merry…
for tomorrow we die

Be here, be now, be present…
for the winds doth blow
