In your memory I am dwelling
as you watch time’s candle burn.
Shadows of our past hang on the wall.
With the colors slowly fading,
you chase away the dust
until the day of our last kiss, you can’t recall.
In your heartbeat, you have kept me warm,
yet life, it must go on,
with emotions back and forth the ocean churns.
At the snuffing of a candles flame,
a last kiss gives a burn,
for event horizon’s token is the point of no return.
If at the edge of loneliness,
you choose to live again,
my memory grants you sweet release,
