in fifty years, when the corners of your eyes
have curled under the weight of your smiles,
i will close mine, and rest assured- i will
remember the unwrinkled blue that once 
shook up my lungs and left me breathless-
i will remember the unlined hands that roved
over countless landscapes, conquering-
i will remember the shock of gold that crowned
you as the laughter rolled out from your lips-

how could the world turn on without you?
as long as i have mind to bend to memories,
you will burn on, brand-like, young as dawn,
no matter how your flame has faded since;

i will press you between pages
as you pressed yourself to me,
until time rubs out the words
and all who'd care to read them.
