I stare into your now almost lifeless eyes,
Begging any god who will listen to keep you alive.
I’m not ready to lose you from this world of mine,
I can’t believe how fast this has gone in the swirl of time.
There are still so many memories to make and be shared,
And no matter how close it gets to the end I will never be prepared.
The idea of saying goodbye to you is a reality I cannot face,
And a world without you in it is a world that I cannot embrace.
I’ve never believed in miracles like the way you do,
But the closest thing to miracle I’ve seen was the day that I met you.
I will never forget the way our eyes met across the park,
And how we both felt that amazing instantaneous spark.
How we fell in love so quick and fell in bed even more quickly,
We knew each other so deep and loved so simply.
I knew that first time in your arms I would one day make you my bride,
And when we went out we held the others hand with utmost pride.
Perfectly content with life as long as it was a life spent together,
Like the day you said you would love me until the day after forever.
Any trepidation to dive into the depths of infatuation,
Were now long forgotten figments of our imaginations.
And the night that autumn when crying and yes was your answer,
Unlike the tears you shed two weeks later when you first saw the cancer.
The very cancer that has you lying near lifeless this way,
Now just five hours from what was going to be our wedding day.
The noise in the room deadens as you begin to open your eyes,
Looking at me whispering, “Forever is longer than the day that I die.”
