With a heart that was open but eyes that were closed,
She found a safe place and within she dozed.
In her sleep, she saw a star way up high
And she listened as it sang a soulful lullaby.
“I feel your sobbing heart through the soles of my feet,
But I pray the day is prolonged until finally, we meet.
Your body I caress through my spirit and soul,
But no wish nor truth can make my own body whole.”
Deeper she slept, but the dream didn’t fade,
No matter how much she tried, in her heart it still laid.
Trying to forget, praying for release
She sang in silence in search of that peace.
“I feel your heart and I feel your pain,
I imagined that at my side you’d always remain.
But death took you away and left me here,
With the doubts that surround me, filling me with fear.”
The star returned, now lower in the sky,
A tear she saw as it began to cry.
She wiped that tear with a lock of her hair,
Placed it in her heart and left it there.
The tear was returned when his hand touched her own,
As she made her way skyward no longer alone.
The lovers became one when her life slipped away,
Now in heaven, together, the lovers now lay!
