Dream of You

That moment is with me now,
Exactly as it was then
I feel sheer horror at what I am seeing
You called and I came looking,
Hoping that I would make it,
Praying I would be in time
You were silent when I opened the door,
Your too pale face barely showing recognition
You were only taking shallow breaths when I found you
There was barely enough life in you to make your heart beat
The light behind your eyes,
The thing that I fell in love with,
Was gone
I ache when I remember
I will never let myself forget
