To dust

To dust…

It had all turned to dust
All now broken in bits
All that taken for granted
Well! It no longer fits.
The memories of summers
They’d spent by the beach
All dimmed by the tears
And just out of reach.
Faraway places
They’d loved to go to
He’d probably not visit
Not now, without you.
He goes through the motions
He keeps a nice smile
But he aches deep inside
And he has for a while.
But one thing he’s learnt
He now lives the part
There’s no pain that hurts
Like love’s broken heart.
