Choosing to live as a moment in the sun,

I see you fade amidst

the colours of day,

melting in with the night

as it washes over you.

The stars are a blanket

smothering your dreams

and stealing your hope

from the palm of your hand.

You smile as you watch me,

in bittersweet tears,

as if to say,

"You need not cry for me,

for I, knowing the consequence,

still chose the same path..."
