Evanescence

The dawning sky with all its brilliant hue will soon be gone
The rugged mountains’ misty morning view will soon be gone

We take an early morning stroll, return with dampened feet
The diamond-droplets of the daily dew will soon be gone

We stand there in the sunlight, let our bodies melt to one
The warm embraces of two sweethearts true will soon be gone

We cuddle playfully, while mindful of your weakened state
The universe of joy that once we knew will soon be gone

We snuggle on the love seat then to watch the flickering flames
I’ll miss you so, sweet Abigail, for you will soon be gone
