Gone without – Fotoula Reynolds


She watched his tears
Roll down his face
Wishing she could
Kiss them away
But knew she would
Never know the taste
Of his sadness
His crying lips would
Never meet hers

She knew he loved her
She could see it in his chest
Raw, honest, open
And his words, oh his words
How they made her lovely lungs
Take in all of who he was and
Gifted to her in a way that
Would always guard them for
The rest of their dying days
