Eyes Awake

Rachael McCracken – Deakin University

Face to face

My love and I

Two souls as one

Through out time

We lay here

On this cool earth

Forever together

From beyond birth

Our eyes locked

A lover’s gaze

I’m drowning in her

Her lovely maze

It should be spring

Of warmth untold

But she is pale

And growing cold

It is not me

Her eyes do see

The lights have gone

My angel to be

Eyes awake

She cannot move

Her soul has departed

Left me to loose

Face to face

My love and I

Two souls together

Through out time
