24 hours for life

If I were to have just one more day on earth with you

I would hold you to my bosom

 Shower you in sentiment and kiss your tiny little feet

For twenty four hours I would hold you tight,

Smothering myself with the scent of you

Allowing my perspiration to merge with your tears

Our skin softened and ready, to be sewn

into a blanket

To veil the moment of our passing.

 

One thousand, four hundred and forty minutes,

It shall never be enough.

A mere drop

in the ocean of grief.

A paltry offering to Amphitrite.

Though a lifetime to me.

 

If I were to have just one more day

It would be with you.
