Sirens Lament (Tribute for Saintedmad)

By Leith Plunkett

She whispers poetry in a language
only felt………not heard
Where ink bleeds across the page
changing words to feelings
and sentences to heartbeats

She whispers love in a language
that knows no simple explanation
Charming readers with a sirens tongue
Mourning what comes from a lifetime of heartbeats

Words may one day be forgotten
as the pages turn to dust
and crumble through wrinkled fingers
but a gentle handprint forever felt
where it touched his heart
