Though eyes grow dim and final sunset calls
you ever still remain as bright as care free summers days.
And soft warm smile my heart delights one final evermore
and no regret, not one, no single moment would I trade.
Upon my door the darkness hurled
and screams to steal first kiss and each one since
though splintered wood lay all about my feet
protected, each defended to the last.
And when I lay upon the cold and unforgiving stone
hands crossed upon my fiersome pounding breast
you call me home and no more will I fight
and drift to sleep at last within your arms
