A Coronach
From the breath of you
Came a word or two
And I snapped them up
Holding your words in me
But I needed to breathe and so
Came from the breath of me
A word or two.

That was us: memory so sweet.
Until my words parted us,
And you were helpless.
Gone from the joy of you,
I don't know how to live without you.
Missing you always
Would that I could join you in death
That we could frolick again
As we did in life.
