Those long locks swaying in the air,
Those intense eyes, I have always feared.
The smile curved at the end of your lips,
You there staring at me with your hands above your hips.
You were the epitome of beauty I never wanted to lose,
You were my art and scribbling I endlessly wanted to muse.
The touch of your soft skin,
Made the inner me gleam.
While all was steady and slow, I was not ready for that blow,
The doctors said there is a hindrance in your blood flow.
The glow in you seemed to just fade,
You went pale slowly from your lively shade.
The pain you faced was immense,
I stood strong but it was just pretence.
The fear of losing you killed me each day,
I did try to keep these thoughts at bay.
Slowly you turned so fragile,
I wonder how could life be so vile?
You seemed to sense your end was near,
Truth, I cannot think to bear.
While my world came crumbling down,
I was left with no strength to even frown.
Now that the shade left is dark and gloomy,
I no longer long for a day that is sunny.
I am still stuck in the dilemma of belief and disbelief,
A belief to see you fine and a disbelief that the lively you has just closed down.
Stories and words of wisdom that I have read,
Now I believe those musings have rightly said,
Life is as complex as the locks of a braid,
Life is indeed a complex unsolvable braid!
