A bittersweet goodbye

My eyes
Gravitate towards
Your face
Your hair gently
Resting
On my chest
Slightly heaving
and falling
As my heart beats
That tune you played
On the kitchen floor
And moonbeams dance
Around your
Trembling lips
As you write
Goodbye
On my mouth
And the dew
On your cheeks
Are the tears
I didn’t shed
Because I was trying to
Hold you
All of you
In my fading gaze
