So Long, and Goodnight.

February 20, 2017

I watched the life fade away 

from those eyes of yours tonight.

I didn't want you to be alone,


so I had watched carefully as

your limbs went limp;

and your lifeless body struggled

in the search to find the light.


As you laid next to me and

took your final breath,

a small smile remained on your face


and I kept back my tears,

because I now truly believe that even in death

you can find love and peace.


You had left this world without hardly a trace,

but I knew you would still,  

forever and always be mine.
