Our Last Embrace

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.
