where did you go
and why are you so far 
away from me now
always being so coy and droll 
catch you sighing in the dark
forwarding declarations of your heart

i heard about the news
how it tore her strength and life apart
you held her hand and felt her heart
beating to the rhythm of your tears
the disease spreading it’s fear 

the day you told me 
there was no spark
trembling hands missed the mark
from embraces in the hall
to awkward glances in the fall
