Cancer - Poem by Linda Marie Van Tassell

She said, 'I don't love you, ' and waved goodbye.
There were other places she had to see.
With tears in his eyes, he refused to cry.

He gave a gold locket to Lorelei;
and because he loved her, he set her free.
She said, 'I don't love you, ' and waved goodbye.

He stood there dying but refused to die.
He watched her sail across the western sea.
With tears in his eyes, he refused to cry.

She betrayed her heart and told him a lie,
never revealed the truth of what would be.
She said, 'I don't love you, ' and waved goodbye.

Years later, beneath an overcast sky,
as rain fell above the cemetery,
with tears in his eyes, he refused to cry.

He fell on his knees swearing, 'Here Am I; '
and clenching her locket, said, 'Wait for me.'
She said, 'I don't love you, ' and waved goodbye.
With tears in his eyes, he refused to cry.
