In the flames of time

One doesn’t go instantly

One doesn’t go randomly

One goes part-by-part

Slowly one falls apart

Sudden disappearance is not easy to accept

Not easy to accept is the ‘change’

From a ‘soft and real’ to a ‘hard and virtual’

It is a delicate and fragile moment

Some disappearances are hard to accept

Some are made to live for time eternal

One doesn’t want some to quit

One doesn’t want to consign some

In the flames of time
