Just A Heartbeat Away

She cried in the garden
as ghosts appeared
watching shadows
buried under stone
of her life, which disappeared.

Her light blue eyes
dripped sorry
unforgotten stains
of yesteryears
hiding her tears
in the rains… of tomorrow.

Then she cried in a drawer
a journal of memories
of long heard footsteps
now turned the other way
fading….behind a closed door.

One wall at a time
that crumbles away
shows the light
and a lover
who washes….
these shadows away.

Now she's my darling
in my river of veins
she lays next to me
just a heartbeat away.
