What I Would Do for You
I would stop time for you
tick-tock no more
walking on the frozen water, enjoying immortal life,
dancing on the immobile clouds, spinning on cotton
twirl between the lifelike statues that once moved.
I would make the magic work for you
fake wand no more
just a wave of hand will make the teapots dance
make griffins bow to you. Make them take us in the air
soaring in the rain, hovering above the river,
your laugh echoes across the valley.
I would die for you
dead no more
save you from the horrible fate you suffered,
switch places to make you live, to be alive again.
why did you have to die on me? I wish I knew.
Horrible disease? Nonsense
perhaps I saw you the other day
A mop of black hair, swinging in the crowd
did you leave the hospital without telling me?
I thought you were dead
Author Notes: Dang, more and more depressing. This is dedicated for one of my very close family members. Thanks for reading.
