Death’s Message to Life

O, God knows how long I have adored you,

Your green eyes and the flower crowns around your head.

I have been longing for your touch for thousands of years now,

I wonder if you feel the same way somehow.

You make me feel alive;

From your warm smiles, I thrive—

You are my sweet, sweet summer time.

O, God knows how I looked at you,

Your red lips and your rosy cheeks.

I always admired your satin peach gown

And the way your hair goes down.

You enthrall me;

With your voice, I lull me to sleep.

I wish to be your haven, your comfort.

O, God knows how much I yearn for you,

Your warm body in my arms.

I have dreamed a million times

How happy I would be

If you were with me.

I wish I were your sanctuary;

I will always keep you safe.

But, O, God has kept us apart,

And made it that way from the beginning of time.

I only get to see you when the little ones

Hang in the balance.

O, I wish to see you, my dear—

I love you,

And I will always be yours.
