Poem for a dying mouse

If you survive tonight, dear mouse,
If your mind stays with your soul,
If you will burn that light,
Then you won’t leave a hole,
Inside a young girl’s heart,
A girl who loves you so,
A girl who has such feeling
And will not let you go.
A girl who knows not death,
A girl who knows no end,
So draw your little breath,
And find a way to mend.
If you can make your remedy,
If you can oil your gears,
Then I will never have to see
Her eyes
Fill
With tears.
