When she spoke of our last summer,
there was a sweet melody in her eyes,
as if the gods had fashioned her music,
and stood in ardent awe to see her dance.
When she spoke of our kiss goodbye,
there was a single tear upon her cheek,
as if, with her regret, she knew better,
yet still she cried for our lost romance.
When she spoke of our love and life,
there was a grasping in her last breath,
as if she alone had stilled the moment,
and with her hands, caressed the air.
When she spoke of our last night sleep,
there was a kind of somberness of words,
as if ’twas the only time she felt at peace,
and in her eyes, my comfort waited there.
