she’s unfadeable
every moment
that stands between
her last smile
and tomorrow’s dream

as I have slowly become
the blend in the evening sun
her colors still fill
each glass
that’s half full

it’s as if all clocks
have no time
set to pause
in baited breath
searching for rewind

she’s unfadeable
my weakness
releases her
as my strength
holds her

and in the silent whispers
that refuse to rest
her soul never fades
