~her Words, His Promise~ - Poem by E Nigma

Just like it was yesterday
Her words echo in my mind
Take my hand son, we have little time.
Her eyes asked the question she wouldn't dare ask

But somehow she managed
As the words slipped past
Her lips moved while
In a soft whisper her voice said

We need you to hope again

Humanity needs someone to believe in
Or it too, like my life, shall end

Struggle I did between her dying words
And the broken heart beating within my chest
Tears streamed down my cheeks
A quiet rage boiled beneath

I don't want their world!
I don't want their suffering!

To that she said...

All we have is love son
That's all we ever did

When I look at you
I see a boy, lost within a man
Do you have the strength
To make your way home again?

I care too much for them to understand
Then you son, must make them
Show them why we live

Her eyes closed
Her last words said

You, must learn to love again
