Since you can no longer cry,
I will cry for you.
Since you can no longer smile,
I’ll do that too.
Since you can no longer dream,
I’ll make your aspirations true.
And when you take your last breath,
I’ll stand in your place.
I shall inherit your lost color
and incorporate it.
I see you as you have always seen me.
Since you have lost your ability to fear,
I nod to you in death.
