For All Eternity My Beloved - Poem by Chikere Zakka

You said you were just gonna walk just down the street
To get some food to eat
When you left I saw your wallet on the coffee table
I took it and ran out the door after you when I heard a scream
Followed by a shot and the sound of running feet fading away
And slowly walked to the spot where your body lay
You look pale as a ghost and cold as a glacier and still as a stone
Across your face lay a tear
Oh if only I could have known!
I fall to my knees and cannot move
For I am filled with sorrow and so much gloom
I could have been there but you said no
If only I was there before you meet your doom
I could feel the pain of lost, even this soon
But it seem so unreal at the same time
And you were mine
I see your body marked and red
But even as I can barley move
I lean and kiss you upon you icy forehead
If only I could have been with you
You wouldn’t have died this way
As I lay for hours and hours beside you holding you in my arms
A man comes up and say, “What happened? ”
I say in a quiet voice, “He took my beloved away.”
They had to pry my binding arms from your body
I will not forget till this day
That I prayed day and night that I could see your smile
In that beautiful heaven one day
