She talked of the moon
How it grazed her hair every evening
Leaving her with a sense of peace
She probably would have never known.
She talked of the sun
How it stayed with her during the day
While she dealt heavily with monotony.
She whispered to him about the stars
How they would appear
Just for her
When she went outside.
Spoke of the dancing lake
How the inviting waters were always there
To greet her
Wash away forgotten tears
He listened as she spoke of all the things
She was grateful for in her lifetime
As she slowly slipped away.
All she had to say
All he wanted to hear
All he was waiting for
All of his life
That had anything
To do with him.
