The Lover's Last

The days my mind
wanders into bliss
are the days I find
transcendent joy

The image of you
fills my heart
until my chest is
too full to breathe

The touch of your hand
sends chills through me
until I can no longer
bear to stand

Your grip on my heart
is unwavering
and you have led me
far from safety

My tomb shall read:
"Here lies the Lover
who loved until
her last breath"

What it will not say
is my Lover took
my breath away.
