This one is for Augustus and Hazel- because you gave me forever within the numbered days and I’m grateful.
Living is a side-effect of dying
And pain demands to be felt
You leave me forever crying
Demanding to be held.
I am in love with you, Hazel Grace,
And it’s the nature of stars to cross
Life with a harmatia is bittersweet to taste
To not outlive you is my greatest loss.
Of Amsterdam and last wishes
Swing-sets and the Heart of Jesus
Unsmoked cigarettes and speeding cars
Nothing but the fault in our stars
Your unfathomable thoughts; making love in May
Living in the moment, laughing at the way we are
Because you gave me a forever within the numbered days
And it’s nothing but the fault in our stars

I know this isn’t half as good as the others, but I kind of wrote it with a tune in my head. But anyway, let me know what you think.
