saudade/

laying here, too heavy
a memory of your taste
laying here for hours
laying here for days

i watched you sleep for hours
before you slipped away
each minute you grew more beautiful
with every breath you'd take

the shade of you still lingers
imprint on the sheets
i'll be laying here for hours
laying here for weeks...
