A Moment

A Moment

For a moment
As I watched the white beneath you
Rapidly turning crimson red

I felt a chill
Sharp and new my soul sliced through
It seemed my own life you bled

Sense that day
My worlds turned gray
The moment before you took a breath
For 100 years, in the grave with you I lay
Until my very spirit did decay
And all my joy and hope rotted away

For a moment as I begged for you to wake
I could feel the earth begin to shake
As always for the Bard it is to take
I felt my own foundation brake
As I begged ever desperately for you to wake

Why give someone like me
Such a precious fragile gift
With clumsy shaking hands I try so hard to lift
Slipping with every step and shift

That moment that I failed
The moment you let go
Lives inside my mind forever now
Repeating painful and slow

In that moment
As I watched the white beneath you
Rapidly turning crimson red

Laying there is still
My heart and soul of everything blue
Cold, lifeless, dead
