Love Hurts.....

He was a man that captured my heart
He made me believe in myself
He was able to talk me around
To be a better human being
We talked for ours on the phone
About the small things that came our way
He was always able to lift me high....when ever I was feeling down
And in the time that I knew him...he had become very ill
He was in and out of hospital...but he always told me he was fine
We were friends the first time we developed into something more
We found we had common ground so many things we had shared with love
He taught me how to feel again
He taught me how to trust again
He taught me men were not that bad
He showed me his warm and gentle heart
But as the days grew longer...his illness made me cry
Because one day he vanished and I could no longer laugh or smile
But one thing I will remember...
Is his last words said to me
'Don't worry Love I'll be there come hell or high water I will be there
On valentines your gift is me'
He passed away so quietly.... it broke my heart in two
Now Valentines is a memory of what was meant to be

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
