Life, loyal to her beloved, Death
take small amounts of passionate breaths
in between a prolonged eternity.
Their relationship is of a tumultuous kind
where neither her mother, Nature, nor her father, Time,
can intervene through their love’s sincerity;
Death wipes the tears from vivacious Life’s eyes
and explains to her they were not created for such a mortal like prize.
Life abides yet forlorn and left wondering "why",
while Death must always vow to tell his loved ones goodbye.
