I held your hand while stroking your cheek
Whispering to you the depth of my hearts belief
You stared blank at the ceiling but I knew you still there
When the winds stirred the curtains to brush at my hair
With rattled breath you returned to the ocean
Waving goodbye with the power of rawest emotion
Your sweet and gentle passing has erased your pain
But in doing so has increased mine, bring on the rains
Silent your breast, cooling of skin, I sat next to you so very alone.
It was a sacred privilege, an honor, to walk your stardust spirit home.
