RAINE REFLECTIONS

Fame



Lost forever
in a moment,
a little glimpse
and then it’s gone
A lost but gentle gleaming,
the last refrain
of a final song

Another glimpse,
another moment
before the breaking
of the dawn
A fretful-smile and tearful parting
The soft farewell
of moving on

As a Disciple
of long foreboding,
the fatal silence
that fills all sound
The eternal fleeting moment
ends a life
once thought profound
