He held her in his arms
As life was slowly slipping away from her
He cried…
Her eyes did not have any sign of tears

She had found her way to him at last
After years of pain and suffering
She found him
He forgave her as they both knew he would

She looked pale
He started begging her not to leave him
She told him everything
That he was the object of her desire

With a sigh and a tear in her eye
Life slipped away from her
He still held her close
Rueful for the chances he lost
