The Light in Your Eyes. A poem.

I saw the light in your eyes
Burn bright then fade away
It was your last and final call
Before approaching Heaven's Gate

I smelt your very last breath
Felt your body as it slacked
It was holding you in my arms
That I finally faced the facts

You were heavier in weight
And I was heavier in heart
But I carried your limp, cold body
Once together, now apart

Under a new and tiny sapling
I buried you deep anon
And in a rain of falling tears
I wrote for you a song

I remember you on Winter days
On winds your soul has flown
Reminded when I see your tree
From which new life has grown

Just in case you didn't know, all my poetry is intensely personal, it's all part of me and based on my life.

Thank you to everyone who has liked and commented positively. It is much appreciated.

I’m a writer who loves tabletop role playing games, poetry, music, movies, comics, books and (you guessed it) writing. Occasionally I have something to say...
