The last time I saw you,
I heard you laugh and saw you cry,
but my eyes stayed closed.
The last time I heard you, my heart was beating fiercely
like the earth rumbling from a stampede of one thousand horses.
The last time I touched you, there was a crack between the
earth widening every time I reached closer to you.
The last time I fell,
you waited for the wound to heal and blood to stop.
You gave me your heart. You gave me a chance, the last time.
