I watched as you slept,
So peaceful, so sound,
Yet I knew it was just a matter of time.
They would come; they always do.
I couldn't imagine being without you.
I couldn't imagine them taking you back.
So as you slept,
I slid my pen knife into the side of your pretty head, just at the temple so as not to disturb your beauty,
And now you're always with me;
Now you'll never leave.
