• will i fade into wilted photographs
    as but a memory in the sea of lost love

    or will you hold onto my lingering passion
    in hopes of the return
    of a man ounce admired my those who you hold upmost

    and will you stay by my side when the time comes when breath draws ever so short
    between the beats of my withered heart will you whisper
    i love you

    and at the very moment when the spark of life dies in me will you kiss me and bid me my last farewell
