Remember When
by April Payne

Days came,
No more.
Time passed,
Youth faded.
Dreams died,
Accept fate.
Heart resolved,
Fading slowly.
Remember back,
Carefree days.
One ambition,
Never forget.

I heard a Fly buzz (465)
by Emily Dickinson
I heard a Fly buzz – when I died –
The Stillness in the Room
Was like the Stillness in the Air –
Between the Heaves of Storm –

The Eyes around – had wrung them dry –
And Breaths were gathering firm
For that last Onset – when the King
Be witnessed – in the Room –

I willed my Keepsakes – Signed away
What portions of me be
Assignable – and then it was
There interposed a Fly –

With Blue – uncertain stumbling Buzz –
Between the light – and me –
And then the Windows failed – and then
I could not see to see –
