I wipe away her tears.
Place one hand on her waist,
Touch her cheek, and gently press my lips against hers.
I curl her soft hair around my finger,
And stare deep into her eyes.
I whisper her name.
I softly caress her lips with mine,
For a moment, letting them slowly part..
I take hold of both of her delicate hands and pull her closer to me.
My heart beats faster as her pungent fragrance fills my nose.
I just stare at her.
You never leave my mind.
- - - - - -
You will never leave my mind.
I can still picture your beautiful face,
But now all I can do is stare at your name.
Only material things smell of you,
And the slow, thud of my heart only just carries on.
Someone else takes my hand as a gesture of kindness.
Now my lips can only caress yours in the polaroids.
I whisper you name.
A curl of your hair clinges to me,
But that is taken away as well.
Something slides down my cheek,
But I just place my hands in my pockets.
Who will wipe away my tears?
