The Visitor

The shadows of eternity
Have fallen on this house once more.
Death lingers in the quiet corners,
Keeping a patient vigil
Until his moment of exit arrives,
Leaving grief as a reminder
That his departures are only temporary.

"departures are only temporary" -- I definitely like that thought!

Those shadows fell too many times last year...chilling but great piece!
