For Your Eyes Only

I hold your hand
And feel the fear inside;
You never met anyone like me. I am no threat
Forever in your debt.
You saved me once.
I must repay 
I watch the sunlight
Cascade into an empty room
And soon
The darkness, it unfolds.
I am not a perfect man
I know that,
But it feels cold,
Yes, it feels cold.
By candle light
I write
Into the autumn gloom.
I fall asleep, pen in hand.
I cannot bend 
The rules of time.
But you’re not here
No, you’re not here.
