When those words crossed the boundary that was her lips,
And escaped into the atmosphere,
Like a balloon filled with hydrogen my heart skipped a beat.
It was as if the world had been put on pause,
So that I could recover from the punch my stomach just took,
It was as if the host of ‘Punk’d’ was going to jump up from behind the couch
And free me from my misery.
Because the days leading up to those words,
Had been filled with only heartbreak and we had thought that life was done,
Dealing its blows…but alas, he was gone.
