I gazed deep into your eyes and saw something there,

That I could not explain, so deeper I stared.

And the longer I gazed the more I was certain,

What I saw was your soul, no longer behind a curtain

And then you spoke, voice ringing so sweetly,

Like the song of an angel, I leaned in discreetly.

Then in a trance, I proposed marriage,

To sweep you away with a horse and a carriage.

When you said yes I dressed in my best,

But disease to soon stopped your heart cold in your chest.

I cried, I raved, I then took a breath,

Realizing we all must give way to death.
