I Once had Life

I once had life in me. Slowly it drained away. Now all that is left is a shell.

I once had life in me. Vibrant life flowed through me, active and resonating. Now …  I stand in quiet solitude.

I once had life in me. Color filled me with highlights and happiness. Now I am faded and run down.

I once had life in me. I had meaning. I had purpose. For that I am grateful.

The memories are distant. Yet, there is still some beauty showing through this crumbling facade. A glimpse of what I once was.

A special thanks to - Jane Billinghurst.
