Your heart was warm
Like the blood that flowed through your veins
Before it stopped

Your hands were warm
Like the glow in your eyes, so bright
Before they ceased to have sight
Never opening again

My dear, you were robbed of living
As if the burdens of life were too heavy for your bearing
You who loved
My beloved,
ever loved

Death ripped me of you
But I’ll carve you into memory
All of your good and your beauty
Forever preserved in my eternity
