Just Then - Poem by Candice Witherington

Just then; you walked past me, no words were exchanged but the scent of your cologne lingered like a sweet melody.

Just then; I heard your voice down the corridor and my heart began to pound wildly in my chest.

Just then; our eyes met across the room and I gazed into them, hopeless against their power.

Just then; you held me in your arms and my body became weak like a newborn babe.

Just then; you kissed my cheek and your lips were like a sweet fire against my flesh.

Just then; you made love to me and the world began to spin wildly, the earth shook and our passionate cries echoed into the night.

Just then; I walked down the aisle to see you waiting for me at the other end knowing this was the moment my life would finally begin.

Just then; we sat on a porch swing hand in hand, gray hair shimmering in the sunlight as gentle summer breezes swept across fragile skin.

Just then; I held your hand on my chest and whispered I love you as you slipped away into the abyss.
