your eyes meet mine

velvet dimples in the sky

twinkling in the night

starlight is so bright

through the cut-outs i can see

your soul is staring back at me

and though i know at dawn of day

you will slowly slip away

tonight i can pretend

that we were a bit more than friends

your hand is frail inside my own

the screens are beeping

next door, someone moans

but you’re an angel at death’s door

and as much as i need you, God needs you more

your beautiful eyes close again

and you blink twice

my heart stops

your hand drops

it’s too soon!

stars can’t fade before the night is over

but a cloud falls over yours, and your skin turns cold

in a moment i age a hundred years

but you were never that old
