Before

Before you die

sit here, snug in my eyes

where love circles you

endless and time-capsuled.

Paint me pictures of you

in shades of words

I have never heard.. before.

Write me letters in the wind

when all I hear is the storm,

leave your kisses in the clouds

to fall like feathers with the rain

Please don’t ask me to explain

Before you die

sit here, snug in my eyes

  1. “Before you die
    sit here, snug in my eyes
    where love circles you”

    Good heavens, that’s gorgeous. That is all I would want my love to know and feel. You never want someone to die not knowing how deeply you felt about them.

    โ€œleave your kisses in the clouds
    to fall like feathers with the rainโ€

  5. This is a heartbreaker of a poem, Mish. I love the phrases โ€˜sit here, snug in my eyes where love circles youโ€™ and โ€˜Write me letters in the wind when all I hear is the stormโ€™. I have a tear โ€“ a big one.
