Executioner’s Song–1995

A single, silver tear rolled from her eye

as lightning streaked over the mountain.

A storm threatened to break around her,

only slightly milder than the one within her.


How she missed his embrace as they closed

the door behind him, as they took him away.


She never had been this alone, never had

longed this much for his touch.

A touch she never more would feel, as

they led her away toward the end of her life.
