louis rams (09/13/1943 / new york city)
i lied in bed next to her, as her life
drained from her body
she was not wishing me goodbye
but was welcoming me home.
home into her heart, where i was
such a big part.
we shared hopes, dreams, memories
and joys beyond compare.
for alongside me she was always there.
together we smelled the roses
and looked up to the skies
seeing clouds forming shapes
and asking ourselves why?
a letter, a note, little things you wrote
a smile, a laughter, little things we did after.
i feel the warmth of your love
filling my every being
touching my soul
and giving me meaning.
now i know just what you meant
that we would never part.
for the truest gift in life is love
which stays within the heart.
