I remember your voice,
How it echoed in my mind.
My name, a caressing whisper
An eternal, immortal bind.
I remember your touch,
How it lingered on my skin.
Sent a shiver down my spine,
An unforgiven sin.
I remember your eyes,
How they were full of emotion.
Passion, desire, love..
Promising me your devotion.
And as your corpse lay in my arms,
I fear the memories will slip away.
I wish my tears would awaken you,
But instead, slowly, you only decay.
I cling to the lifeless body,
Because I'm unwilling to let go.
I don't care about the blood soaking me.
I don't care that now, my emotions show.
I know that your spirit will linger,
You'll always be in my heart.
And even though the body is empty
I dread the moment we must part.
Because if you're in the casket,
And I'm standing at your grave,
I can no longer touch your skin.
Without the feel, how am I to be brave?
But I know that I must go on.
And I must finally say good bye.
I will look forward to being with you again.
No longer am I afraid to die.
