Witness

The wind kicks up

And I wake up

Remembering, knowing

In this moment I am alive

Swirling life, dancing wind

 

The wind dies down

And I hold on

Remembering, knowing

Such lives have gone before

And are no more

Stolen life, somber wind

 

Soldiers, comrades, heroes, friends

Once here, now mere memory

Carried on the wind

Voices of the past

Whispered in soft breezes

Sung out in storms and gusts

 

Wind, a reverent witness

What was, what is, what will be
