I.

the tears stream down, hush
you are cradling me, telling
me that i am fine.

II.

i resist the urge
to cry and scream and break down.
you are here for me.

III.

i clutch onto you.
you press your lips against mine
gently, softly. (smile.)

IV.

the feelings don't fade.
i love you, you tell me. (oh.)
tears fall down instead.

V.

darkness takes over me.
her breathing is silent but calm.
i wake; she is here.
