The Eyes

Those eyes etched on my memory forever
That ‘spoke’ as the helpless mouth ‘stared’ from the ventilator

Was it asking from his love for one last kiss
So his heart could forever rest in peace 

Was it asking for one last wish to be fulfilled
Before the last breathe from him out slipped

Was it asking to help him linger through another spring
So the unfinished job to a closure he could bring

Was it asking for the warmth of a hug
His body had been on life support for way too long

Was it asking to let go of all hope
To free his soul that was tied to life in a rope

Was it asking for the promise to move on
To shun all sorrow when he is forever gone
