The glow of autumn's moon upon her hair, a sight I will nary forget. Who cares if blood ran in pools at our feet. We'd be ok I promise, I am still happy we met. Then her eyes, then her eyes they faded.....she was gone, the love of my life was gone. All my memories, and thoughts we had created. Of us returning home gone, taken from me in an instant. The things I had planned to do for her. Letting her relax,making her comfortable enough to recover, cooking, tending the animals. I would have done it all! The love we will never share, the passion gone. Swept away in one rapid motion of her eyelids shutting...never to open again. My motherless children, o God! my children without their mother. How am I too raise them alone? I have no comforting touch, no soothing voice to help sleep them, no kiss to heal, all I have are these damned hands. They are for work...they are rugged; hers soft, they are large, hers small they are warm....hers cold. In this world I am now alone.The reason the very sun rises has been taken from me. The reason I wake,my hope, my carry on, all is now gone. What is a man too do without a love so strong? Strong; weak now I am weak. A mind clouded by an endless sky. A warriors sword without an edge. A body with no limbs. A heart that cannot love. I am a star with an eternal light but alas, my shine has been taken from me.
