What would I do? Who would I be
if Death took you, ignoring me?
How could I face the garish dawn
without my love, my only one?
The blush of sunset at day's end
could hold no warmth, no promised blend
of our sweet souls as lovers, friends,
each night so cold, day without end.
I do not know how it can be
you are you, and I am me,
and yet without you by my side
who would I be? Can I deny
that both our spirits breathe as one
in laughter, sorrow, shade, or sun?
Though others may not understand,
I have this wish, to take your hand
should Death take you, ignoring me,
and then I'd slip to Eternity
outsmarting Death by sneaking in,
winking at you while holding your hand.
