Echoes

Image Source: Google Images
Happy words, pretty words and  
Everything cheery
Deftly tossed aside
Perhaps had the ink dried
Before the writing vanished
A sliver of hope, here be,
To avert their evanescence
Now it’s too late, for they are
Dispersed and dissipated
As ash on a riverbank
No trace of them anywhere
Not a bit of burnt scent left
Nor a glimpse of dust in light
It’s as if they never existed
Merely echoes of memories past
