"Spirited" as written by and Laura A Gibson....
Our bodies still as photographs
Beg the ground to swallow us
And press our lonesome silhouettes into the dirt
Light reflecting off your face
Casting colors on your cheeks
I saw you shining
Saw you shining
Brighter than before

Autumn bears a bitter song
Creeping out across the yard
And weaving through the alder branches overhead
Of all that is escaping us
I have never been so certain as today

When the seasons settle in our lungs
They'll harden us, they'll cover us in crows
But cannot wash the laughter from our tongues

Time is quick to carry on
Certain as the morning tends to
Hollow us and turn our words to smoke
In all that is escaped us
And all that we could hold in place
I saw you shining
Saw you shining
Brighter than before
