Huitain: Do not untimely mourn

From Dungeon Prompts Week Six:

*Write a short story, poem, or share a picture or song that represents mortality to you.

The couple


Do not untimely mourn

Though I see your smile daily glow,
These days will pass-by all too soon,
Leaving an emptiness to grow,
Within me ’til I too shall swoon,
Alas, ’tis the fate of humans born…
But wait! Look at autumn’s full moon!
Do not shed tears, untimely mourn,
Sing now with me a living tune.
