Cuddle

Cuddle with me my fallen friend

For you it's the end of a long hard day,

But for me it's the start of the rest of my life

In this hell of hunger and sadness and strife.

Cuddle with me just for a moment longer.

Let our memories linger like perfumes of the passed;

Days when we laughed,

And horrible, beautiful times of the past.

I lift my head from your shoulder now

And I softly stroke your waxy brow.

There's still no response

So I leave your silent satin box,

Then watch you roll away from me

And yet I hear you speak to me

Whispering sweet words to me

And feel you standing next to me.

Make me laugh when my eyes begin to puddle.

Make me laugh when I remember our last cuddle.
