My Last Words


My last words to you:
"I love you",
a fragment of a life story
that was cut short.


I had so much left
to say to you,
but you were taken from us
before we were ready. 


I counted on tomorrow
even though your fate was decided
and you were gone
before the next sunrise.


So my last words escape my heart
and rest with you
in a memory box I keep
in the corner.


"I love you...
more than words can describe.


I love you

in spite of your mistakes,
regardless of any pain
you've caused anyone.


I love you because
you are my blood.


I love you since
you and I are the same.


And in your death,
I rise from your ashes,
and change for both of us
into who you were
always meant to be."
