He said, ''You look beautiful today, baby.''
(But the truth is
that she had mascara smeared all over her face
because she just realized her muse disappeared.
You were always the thing that killed her nerves.)
Whenever you smothered her neck in kisses
she always would have a light in her eyes.
You were always her little piece of heaven.
You were the only thing that made her smile.
(All she ever lived for was you.)
