I lie awake, most every night.
Wondering why, I still fight.
I look at you, you hold my hand.
My only tether, to this land.
I try to smile, through tears of pain.
Death laughs at us, time's disdain.
As twilight looms, and sunlight fades.
Darkness grows, lost hope cascades.
But in your eyes, I see the light.
Of love eternal, burning bright.
So when I'm gone, and you mourn.
Not all is lost, not all forlorn.
While fate is cruel, and life is fleeting.
In time eternal, we'll be meeting.
Forever one, forever more.
Where death and time, keep no score.
