Awkward Beautiful

today is the day I die  
but that doesnít mean a thing  
because the last thought I have is of you  
and as the flames cover me  
just know I'm at peace  
reminiscing of the day we first met  
  
that sight when I first looked into your eyes  
you were awkward yet so beautiful  
with a smile that drove me in your heart  
days got hard but we fought through the odds  
we were young with the world ahead of us  
still I feared it would end  
because I could be such a nerd  
I realized in time  
that none of that mattered  
just know the pain didn't break me  
because the last memory I have is of you  

like the time we laid together  
talking about the sky  
as I turned to kiss you  
you asked me to wait  
so I took your hand and ran it across my face  
hoping that the next time would be the day  
now I know what we are  
we are human  
and I know what we are meant for  
itís to live  
and when we die itís not a tragedy  
itís just the end  
so Iím sorry  
but just know I loved you  
more and more every day  
if there is an afterlife  
I will wait for you...  

when the plane came  
I watched in despair  
the crash shattered the windows  
and deafen my ears  
as the flames covered my body  
they evaporated my tears  
I started to burn to ashe  
falling down so unprepared  
not ready to lose you  
but so happy I knew you  
with all my heart

This is a rewrite of a old poem I wrote some time after 9/11. Guess the first emotion that hit me that day was all the lost love. I imagined what it would be like if I was there. What would be my last thoughts. And I thought of the person I love.
