To go

Before you go
Will you tell all
As was
Before you go
Will you keep close
As near
One last touch
Couldn’t we just
Stay forever.


For you

I push him to challenge me
But he just gives in
He accepts
I cross boundaries I shouldn’t
To provoke a reaction
He stays
And as I empty my last breath
I ask him
Why this unwillingness
To throw in the towel
And he bends
Only to look up
With eyes speaking words
More mighty than imagined
I believe that’s what he called it.
