Spare me the pains of the inky night,
Give me shadows of the lustrous moon.
Don’t sing me songs of adieu
in whispers, that I barely knew.
Rest and let go of the garbled breath,
that wracks your tattered body.
Let go my love, of the thread
that leads to turmoil and misery.
Go, move on to the sunshine of joy,
and suffer no more my sweet.
gnarled fingers and wrinkles are done now,
and time for your restful sleep.
Don’t worry for in time I will be,
with you in the folds of your dreams.
Where nothing counts but you and me,
and together we will always be…
…until the end of time.
Dew drops, fresh and sparkling,
sun beams dancing and leaping,
in the verdant grass, glinting,
With the promise of a new tomorrow.
I held on to your hands – smiling-
my heart alight and singing,
in a tune I’ve never heard ringing.
To me, you have given your precious vow.
