“In life, unlike chess, the game continues after checkmate”- Isaac Asimov

An open window
That you promise to leave open
And bear with heavy rain
That contains crying pain
Ignore the lost insects that crawl inside
And winters that blows in shivering nights

The open window
That also shares sunlight and smiles
Sunrises of memories and love
With a view like no other

Promise me you’ll never pull the curtains
And that you’ll never shut me out

I Agree with the crying part- it was beautiful how you wrote it.
