For Sunshine Lost

Sorrow, not for the gray skies
But for sunshine lost,
Too soon, by choice,

Remembered with tears,
Immortalized with smiles:
Hoarded memories,
Precious treasures,
Too few, finite,

A pain, never weakened,
But slowly callused,
Steadily distanced
To dullness
But for harsh moments
When the shield slips,
And the torment strikes true:
Too much, overwhelming,

In perpetuity
