Fluttering Heart


In faint he whispers to his love
“Don’t forget to rest too, dear”
Unbeknownst to both,  
it would be his last words.
That night while his love is lost 
in a dream laying down on the 
thin cot next to him,
he watches his love intently
heartbroken from hearing the 
sound of exhaustion,
but it’s the mere
fluttering of eye lashes 
that brought tears 
to his eyes, while
his heart also flutters
…for the last time.

This is a product of my imagination but based on a true story; a tribute to a dear friend. Because of him I found the courage to delve into poetry again. Thank you. May you rest in peace in your new world now. Flutter away freely with your wings.
