It’s sad that only now
I took to write
a poem.
It’s sad that only now
The words decide
to come.

But now that you can’t read
I guess it makes it
Perfect,
Before
It wouldn’t be
Good enough.

So I can start by telling
That you were
the one
That kept me up and going
When everything seemed so
Dull and dumb and senseless
But your pretty
Smile
And your cute
Little honey
Froggy face.

Your little jumps
When you were happy.
Your twitchy nose
When you were sad.

I try to store it all
And cherish it daily.
Fucking treasures in my head.

Will someday I loose them
And forget your essence?

Will someday I quit
And let your image turn to
Pictures in a drawer
I’ll never dare to see?

Memorials of a tale
That’ll never get to be

A happily ever after!
A true forever more!
I don’t care that no one
Ever got to
Forever before
We were gonna be the ones
To break the evil laws of time
And be worshiped by fat monks
In a stony shitty shrine.

But no…

The time keeping waters that flow
Said it was your time to go.
And shoved a fucking truck in your car.
Now legend says you’re a star…
And you took two others with you,
Cute things so pure and so new.
Do 3 stars make a constellation?
Or do you need to wait for the fourth?

Do you remember
The promise we made
Of searching Asia
For the perfect chamber maid
To look after our kids
In a palace castle thing
Built in the mountains
Of the magic Sintra scene.
We would have some hidden chambers
A ceramic tea cup room.
A weapons collection
Facing an Indian plume.
You could have a little rabbit
I a dog bigger than me:
Teach one to ride the other
Sure would be a thing to see.

And you’d sing throughout the morning
While I’d write my silly things
And our boys would fight each other
For no reason, just like kings!
I would have to be the pope
And tell them Hush! Lets go to lunch!
But later teach them all about
The proper fighting stance!

But no…
The time keeping waters that flow
Said it was your time to go
And shoved a fucking truck in your car.
Now legend says you’re a star…
And you took two others with you,
Cute things so pure and so new.
Do 3 stars make a constellation?
Or do you need to wait for the fourth?
