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

Of yesterday.

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

Was anything

That had anything

To do with him.
