A moment shared
It rained like swallows’ tears
the day I caught your
Wisdom of a lifetime brushed my cheek
as I whispered ‘I love you’,
a thousand unspoken words
trapped like canker in my throat.
Fifteen years have crossed my path
and still I cry for moments lost,
searching for that unseen crack in space
where I could slip inside and make up
for all that should have been.
Each breath reminds me
of our moment shared,
when you held on for me to wake,
to race through corridors of fear;
I did not need technology to know.
You left me with your final breath.
I whispered in your ear,
and know you heard me.
