113

I remember every eyelash

I counted while she slept

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

And I remember the rise and fall

Of her chest when she breathed

26, 27, 28, 29, 30

I remember her laugh

And the way she talked

44, 45, 46, 47, 48

The crinkle of her eyes

And lips when she smiled

61, 62, 63, 64, 65

I remember how she rolled her eyes

And the scoffs at my ideas

77, 78, 79, 80, 81

But I remember the way she’d push me

To strive for better, better, better

99, 100, 101, 102, 103

As I search the place next to me

Under the covers, blankets, sheet

109, 110, 111, 112, 113

I can see her sleeping face right there

And all 113 curling eyelashes
