When Death Took Her Away

separation_3

Tears down the face making way to his dry lips.
The choked voice trying to call her back.
Breath stopped; love unceased.

Beatific creases unfolding permanently.
Eyes abandoning every dream without her.
Broken heart; memories etched.

The death holding her, uncompromisingly.
The life leaving him, concomitantly.
Hands separated; souls coupled.
