If ever I doubt the way my heart feels
Once again, unbidden, to my mind will spring
the image of your body, lifeless and still
wreathed in flowers as the pallbearers sing.
Just imagining this in my darkest thought
sends daggers clawing through my chest
It makes me regret each time that we’ve fought
And the longings increase to give you my best.
So if ever I look at you without my heart twinging
I will remember again, life is so very fleeting.
This place is too evanescent to doubt
that my love for you should know no bounds.
