imagining your death

Please my love, don’t die
Though I know I too will die later
You will be in heaven
I am not sure I could make it

Do you want me to peel some apples for you?
Do you want me to read some love poems for you?
Do you want me to turn off the stars
that bother our dreams?
I can do them all, my love

Please my love, wake up, and open your eyes
You can feel me living inside you
My love to you, my enormous love to you
will give life for us both

Do you want an ocean with sailing ships?
Do you want to listen to new songs or old songs?
Do you want me to kill the neighbours’ dogs
that keep barking and bother our dreams?
I can get them all

Do you want that rising sun lamp?
Do you want a mountain behind the window glass?
Do you want the rain weeping or singing?
For you, I can make them all

But please my love, don’t die
Or as strong as you could, blow out your last breath
For me to breathe in, then you could stay alive
Inside me…

But please my love, don’t die
Please don’t die…
Please don’t…
