Love is watching someone die (version III)

Watching your final breath unfold
And wing away
From the cocoon of this DNA
That you left in me too
Your humors
Your wit
The curve of your smile
And your love of love
Your legacy,
I could let you go
Without rising
To scoop you up
In my net of need…
I never thought I could-
We were so inextricably bound
But I could see you wither
And turn your eyes
To what you believed lies beyond
And from there
It was only a nod
And a smile
Between us
And you were gone
