...And I Will Always Love You


I made vows to never depart away from her
But alas! Yesterday was her last day with me
Oh! How I wish fate would travel as I prefer
Constantly listening to me and voluntarily agree

I sat right next to her as she suffered
Suffered from the merciless disease
That smote her with a rusty sword
Sword that brought her down to her knees

I looked at her hopeless wrinkled appearance
Her flowing tresses have now lost its dye
She gave me a weak smile as I glanced
My conscience can't smile but just sigh

I grasped her hand while she lay on the bed
Motionless like a leaf on a flowing rivulet
Her existence now hangs on a fragile thread
I deeply desire to own a time controller with reset

Its been an amazing adventure staying with her
We occasionally argued but it didn't proceed long
And for ever and a day cherished each other
For our love is eternal and exceptionally strong

The white blank sheets on which I inscribe
Requests me not to drench them with tears
While the brutal death looks at me and gibes
But I know life goes on and I shouldn't fear

Because I still treasure your golden memories
Deep down within my mind I still got the views
Reminiscences of how we first met and our first kiss
And how you whispered in my ears 'I will always love you'
