With My Last Breath, Thank You
Her last words to the world
She taught us gratitude and grace
Gave hugs with a warm loving embrace
There was always a smile upon her face
The way she lived her life
Was the very best
Greetings with kisses on each cheek
Talking and preaching to your ears
I held your hand so gently
As your breaths became shallow.
Each time anticipating that each would be the last
To watch you rise and fall.
Without pride and without remorse
I gave into the eventuality
Of the long second sleep that awaits us all.
As flashes all around, not being seen by the others.
I knew that was only meant for us to see.
You went to take your place amongst them.
No more pain, no more sadness.
Leaving me to finish the work.
You see it behind my eyes now.
Everyone I have ever loved
and received their love in return.
Believing I will see them again.
To know that my path will be my oath.
In my darkness did you only fill me with light
and overturn my cup of hatred into love.
I have watched my world's burn around me.
And finally burn within me.
Did I come to make peace that I was given life.
So I will fight death until I can fight it no more.
I miss you, You are missing from me.
Without you though, I would never be.
Let us reflect her greatness
Keep all the sweet memories
Close inside our heart
There she lives on within us
And we will never be apart…
-Black Widow (Gina Carrillo)
