In Loving Memory

December 13, 2007
By Dominique Pascua, Hanapepe, HI

Why is it when I close my eyes
I see your smiling face?
So I keep them tight
Afraid I might
Lose you when reality's placed.

How can I feel, when snug in bed,
Your loving arms around me?
With sheets pulled near
I lay in fear
I'll forget how you once held me.

Why do I hear, when soft winds blow,
A whisper sent by you?
I can't help but turn
Only to confirm
My wish can never come true.

How is it that after so many years
My heart still aches like this?
So I hold my breath
Wish for death
And await eternal bliss.
