Confronted with this fleeting life, aware of my own mortality.
Waves of realization overwhelm me as the future becomes absolute.
Terror, chased away by memories of how you looked when we first met.
That first warm and gentle greeting as your eyes peered into my heart.
Once you weren’t there and then you were; now it is as though you have always been…
… beside me,
… my solitary witness,
… my dear one, my Evey, my love.
Give me another day, another breath, another night.
It will never be enough.
