Should Death Come Anon
Seeing her for the first time
was like hearing for the first time.
Touching her,
was being on the other side of heaven.
Laying next to her,
was gaining entrance to those pearly gates.

And seeing the light leave her eyes,
I could feel Azrael separating
my soul from my corporeal body.
Seeing her lips turn blue,
I was thrust from heaven
down to the darkest pit of Hell.

How does one go on,
after the very thing that they have lived for
was taken from them?
Her breath was my breath.
I was blood of her blood,
she was blood of my blood.

If aught must be lost,
 ‘twill be my honor for hers. 
If one must be forsaken, 
‘twill be my soul for hers. 
Should death come anon, 
‘twill be my life for hers. 
I am Given.
