He opens his eyes

to bright blue skies,

turning clouds to maps

as his memories run laps.

To her he was life's greatest prize,

to him she was worth all the tries.

He remembers the moments before her demise,

with her sorrowful cheeks and his quiet cries.

Now he searches the heavens for where she lies,

so one morning they may again exchange hellogoodbyes.
