If death does kiss me

If death does kiss me

While I sleep

Holds me while

My breath is deep

If my eyes

Never see

Another morning break

Do not fret my love

For while an icy cold

May linger over me

And a heart beat

May whisper softly

I'll have escaped this end

For while dark matters

Cross behind my eyes

Within them

Light and hope flutter by

For on my lips will lie

A warmth

And my breath will quicken

While my eyes soar

Over the waking of the dawn

My love will not fret

For while a soft glow

Embraces me

And my heart beats

So timelessly

I'll have escaped the end

For in the second day ended

It began with you
