“Before You Say Goodbye”

“Before You Say Goodbye”

Come away with me to paint the oceans of the world
with the colors of our tears.
Run with me to the music studio
to record the final beat of your heart,
and I will write you a new song on a mountaintop.

Come away with me to bury in the deepest sea
the kiss that sealed the two lives.
To smell the last rose of our first valentine,
and we will salvage the hidden leaf in the garden
that interlocked the two hearts.

Come away with me for a last walk in the fields,
To play hide and seek in the dark
Let’s run quickly to the Art Shop to get a tattoo in the night,
and you and I will light the candle on the moon

to give hope to an empty memory in plain sight.
