We met
We became glued to each other
And now He will be gone
Going to a land of no return
But i will be here waiting
Feeding my hopefully hopeless being

With tears in my eyes
I watched you writhe in pains
I watched you go through 31 days
of combat with death
You fought with death,even though you knew you
would not win
It was sure
You were going
Never to return

The thought came
It lited my face
I will have your baby
Yes,I will have you in me
Artificial insemination is the key

I am not crazy
I only want a part of my beloved
that death is about to clutch from my hands
Let me feed my hopes
