Loyalty Vs Separation - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Only those who have given,
Time devoted to the ones loved...
Know with a feeling what this does.
And the meaning of sacrifice,
When someone else's life...
Is a decision made one prioritizes.

And then that regrettable day comes.
When a loyalty versus separation is done.
With a routine fixed and committed for years...
Ends as it began,
To break a heart and bring tears.
As a life witnessed passes on.

Only those who have given,
Time devoted to the ones loved and gone...
Know with a feeling what this does.
And the meaning of sacrifice,
When someone else's life...
Is a decision made one prioritizes.

And then that regrettable day comes.
When the one cherished and loved passes away.
With a doing done and nothing left to say.
Although a loyalty versus separation,
Seems to keep a loyalty that stays.
Regardless of the separation.
Thought of as quick and no longer delayed.
