I reached up, brushed the hair from his face,
As I melted into his embrace.
The sky was hidden from our view,
As the volcano began to spew.
Ash and soot filled the sky,
I held him tight, we both cried.
I tried to comfort this man I love,
As fireballs fell from up above.
I knew that the end was near,
Trying hard to show no fear.
The volcano’s wrath finally found the place,
Where we clung to our last embrace.
