"Your eyes

As we said our goodbyes

Can't get them out of my mind

And I find I can't hide

From your eyes

The ones that took me by surprise

The night you came into my life

Where there's moonlight I see your eyes

How'd I let you slip away

When I'm longing so to hold you

Now I'd die for one more day

'Cause there's something

I should have told you

Yes there's something

I should have told you

When I looked into your eyes

Why does distance make us wise?

You were the song all along

And before this song dies

I should tell you I should tell you

I have always loved you

You can see it in my eyes


Roger watched Mimi's still form as he finished his song and one thought ran through his head, She wasn't breathing. He wasn't the only one who noticed for less then a moment later Maureen cried out, "On my god! She not breathing."

The world seemed to freeze the minds, breaths, and hearts of all in the room. Then it suddenly exploded into motions and sounds. Voices called fragmented sentences to each other and Roger, some about calling a hospital, some about how they were sorry, some just trying to grasp what had happened. Hands reached out trying to comfort him, while other tried to remove his hand from Mimi's, but he couldn't let go. To let go would be letting go of any chance; the chance being that if he held on to her hand he could bring her back. To let go would be the end, that couldn't happen. He couldn't lose her...

His Muse

His Love

His World

His Mimi.
