Swept Away

Tumbling tortured footsteps
steeped in age and will
He was her forever after
she was his safety pill

Swallowing breathless air
images no one could compare
pulled together by time
mountains they would have to climb

Waltzing to the song
that first brought them together
scent of her perfume
her body as light as a feather 

As a breath drew close
eyes fixed on one another
hands held tight
her last fight

Tears fell down
on her lifeless cheek
a man once strong
now on his knees weak

They were once inseparable
united as one
her body gave up
her spirit lived on
