You’re present in
every breath I take
I feel your soft
hands over mine
thinking of you
waiting for me
as you promised
when you lay dying.
Our giant tears
sealed our pledge.
If I could play God,
I would smother
you with kisses,
and roll the story
of our loving bond
back to the day
of our first kiss,
when I knew
you were meant
for me, and we’d
be together forever,
including our future
in the world of the
great beyond.
