Forever, Sleep

I have an unforgettable image in my head
Of her beauty lying in her bed
I watch her as she plainly stares at me
Her motionless body, as still as it can be
Skeleton princess pale as snow
I imagine her loving passionate heart glow
The shadow of her figure turns still as night
Chills running down my spine from all the fright
Peaceful soul rolled into the heavenly sky
Through the fields of darkness she’s like a star shining by
Her life on earth blazed just as bright
In my dreams she’s an angel dazzling with light
Her helping hands where always there to comfort me
Her mind guided me to what I grew up to be
One minute her blue eyes open with delight
But later close forever and out of sight
