A Love To Last


We stole each others heart away,
With hope, with dreams and care;
E'er knowing love would pave the way
For blissful times we'd share.

So oft we trod those peaceful hills,
When love was sweet and new;
Twas there that passion lit the spark
From whence our family grew.

Then death made claim, that fated day,
Amidst the tears we cried
And now, my dear, I see so clear,
Our love has never died.

To soon, in time I'll follow you
Across that great divide;
Together now, forevermore,
Together, side by side.

    Your love is transcendental and touches the non-physical realm. It ends optimistically with belief to meet the departed soul. (Report) Reply

    The poem is heartachingly brilliant! My favorite line:

    Then death made claim, that fated day,
    Amidst the tears we cried
    And now, my dear, I see so clear,
    Our love has never died.

    Oh, this is such a beautiful poem, written from the heart.
    True love never dies, as we look up to the skies,
    we know inside our heart, just as we knew right from the start...

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
