How could I not love a soul



As you turned back to look at me gently in my eyes
It was as if my heart flew around our earthly ties
Glossy big and bright you stopped short as if shy
You remembered the kisses I had placed in goodbye
But it wasn't enough to shatter your lips
Into loving my soul for what it could give
And all could I do but to listen in surprise
to sit for a while in thought of our demise
In awe of your soul as it left me new trials
To rise and be proud of the gift of domicile
While others are left to beg in lifes ryle
