Her fingers trace his face with love,
remembering every detail of their lives together.
The color of his beautiful eyes,
resonates within her mind.
“Please don’t go” she pleads,
with every fiber of her being.
He remains silent.
She takes his hand in hers,
and touches it to her face the way he used to, when they were young.
Such a wonderful life they had,
and so many more years they had planned.
But it was not to be.
He still maintains his silence.
She softly places her lips to his, and whispers, “I will always love you”
Then she closes the casket,
And walks away.
