Parting Thoughts

We held hands and walked through Amsterdam

But never will we see the shoreline's sand

On that night we tasted the stars

But now we are forced to view them from afar

We sat in the church

And read our parting words

Then you left

We left

never to return

I saw you in your deathbed

And knew I would soon be there instead

The monster took you away

But really, he too just wanted to stay

So I leave to you my parting thoughts

I guess at some point we all must be caught
