One Last Time

I cannot,
forget that day.

I cannot.

You face,
is still
haunting me.
The ambulance shrieked,
my head turned,
and there you were.
Whitened cheek,
widen eyes,
opened mouth;
a face,
I could not recognize.
Was that you?
I thought not.
Was that you?
I hoped not.
Was that you?
I prayed not.

Was that really you?
I surrendered,
it was.
was the one last time
I saw you,
in flesh.
you are here.

Sleeping like
a baby.
Rosy cheek,
closed eyes,
soft lips;
a face,
I once know.

Only, Photobucket
missed a soul.
This is the day,
I remember.

The day,
you slipped away.
