Skinny Love



"Skinny Love"
Oh my beautiful skinny love
how I love you so,
with you leaving me
I find the memories of us
just so painful to play.

I couldn't hide the swells of tears
when you looked at me
as if
to say...

I love you...

I told you to just hold on,
but watched helplessly
as you tried to do
what you could not,
no matter how hard you tried.

but you couldn't,
I wanted you to be around
for the summer days,
for the cold winter to pass,
to see the sun wash away this somber gray
that lingers in the air.

You tried,
lying there in bed,
wires all around,
beeps
frequent
and profound.

My skinny love
you lost all your weight
and I hated to sit and wait
for the day you left.

You looked at me
with your sunken eyes
and skinny cheeks
to say I love you
once more
but
instead
you ceased to move
and I watched as the life left your eyes,
and silence filled the room.
I told you to just hold on,
but you could not.
