One Shade The More

One shade the more,
One companion the less;
A multitudinous mirror
Of reflected memory.

In perpetuity to store
One more face;
To recognise, to refer
In the album chronology.

A silent flitting shadow
Finds the darkened crack
In the mirror of the mind;
Stirring nostalgically.

Leaves disturbed anew
Fail to bring back
The light and sound

People once bound.
No longer found;
No longer around;

A glance of shades;
Fading friends;
Greying grades
Of ignorance.

Ivy clinging stone
Informs the shade
The more alone
That there be laid:

In innocence;
In transience;
In abeyance;
In absence.
