In her unconscious state,
It’s only your voice that resonates.
It’s only your touch that is familiar.
Everything and everyone is strange.
Her mind’s a blob,
She knows she’s lying in bed,
But why can’t she wake up?
Why can’t she open her eyes?
Every effort to move is useless.
She wants to scream.
And she hears the alarm beeping.
Then your touch,
The touch that calms,
The voice that soothes,
She can feel your kiss,
And the tears that fall from your eyes.
She hears your pledge of undying love,
And your words of goodbye.
