Meditation by Odilon Redon (from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie)

Forever I miss you, my one and true
as into the light you’ve gone from me.
My words trickle ink that is just for you.

You rested safe in my arms as you grew
and I knew the man you would one day be.
Forever I miss you, my one and true.

In a world, old and ugly, you were new
with amazement in all you could see.
My words trickle ink that is just for you.

On your tiny grave there are flowers blue
surrounded by the mightiest of trees.
Forever I miss you, my one and true.

Eternally broken, my life is through!
I’ll die on your grave where you’re next to me.
My words trickle ink that is just for you.

There is no tomorrow, there’s no one who
will ever explain, ever make me see.
Forever I miss you, my one and true.
My words trickle ink that is just for you.
