Your eyes faint shut
then open again.
The look on your face is strange.
A sadness I have never beheld.
Then I realize.
This is something I cannot fight.
This is where my strength ends.
This is you saying, till we meet again.
You try to talk.
A last chance to hear your voice.
A last chance to hear your expression of love.
Your words are carried into my heart
as I can no longer hold back the break.
And you say
I will always be with you.
Despair fills my very being
for this is not how it is suppose to be.
It was always you and me.
Everything else was just the prelude
to our happiness.
The sound of your laughter made the sun
shine through stormy clouds, and bring
warmth in the harshest winter.
This is the end of me.
It has been 5 years since my heart broke.
You are still the first and last thought
of my days.
And that has made me stronger,
because you were right.
You have always been with me
on my journey of loneliness.
Guiding me back to you.
