I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways to not succeed.

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

My sweet and kind darling,
The days we spent together
May seem to be startling.
But to me, they'll last forever.

Look at the world we made,
So soft, gentle like a child.
Our love, never to fade,
As long as the nights are wild.

Then life was gone in a flash
On that sad, fateful day.
When love went into a car crash
And your lover past away.

Oh lovely girl,
Today is a woeful day.
Look at our own world
Turning into gray.

For I'm not with you anymore,
My day's amongst the living end.
But as I lay in the tomb floor,
My love for you will never be dead.

For I was with you the last time
And I don't want you to cry,
For it went by like a flick of a dime
Yet it was a heavenly way to die.

Just listening to the songs of the Smiths and Depeche Mode inspired me to write this poem. The poem is about before and after a lover pasts away from a fateful car crash. Enjoy!
