Villanelle

 (for my sister Carol)

Our lives move on and sing their own refrains.
We see our family change before our eyes.
When all is said and done our love remains.

This life grants us our losses and our gains.
Times jubilant, remorseful, all that cries
Our lives move on and sing their own refrains.

Peaceful thoughts will minimize the pain.
Remember the good moments as time flies.
When all is said and done our love remains.

Does distance cast a shadow on our brains?
Our hearts can leap beyond to clear our eyes.
Our lives move on and sing their own refrains.

Their essence floats through sunlight and through rain.
As more than once we’ve said our sad goodbyes.
When all is said and done our love remains.

Such happenings no genius can explain.
Well meaning mouths will leave no alibis.
Our lives move on and sing their own refrains.
When all is said and done our love remains.
