Memorial To A Marriage - Poem by Jim Yerman

How beautiful is a heart that loves…what a wondrous sight to see…
instead of trying to restrict it…we should seek to set it free…..


They fell in love in Roman times because that's what lovers do
They meet, and in some inexplicable way…their love comes shining through.

When two people are lucky enough to find each other,
they find love does not confine
It doesn't follow a set of rules,
it has no borderlines…


They fell in love in Roman times because that's what lovers do
but they could not get married…for back then it was taboo.

Two women cannot fall in love…it is not right they'd say
But these two women were not listening…love found them anyway.

Their love was pure and innocent…flowing honestly from the heart
It was universal and unique…
their love…a work of art.


They fell in love in Roman times because that's what lovers do…
They remained together all their lives before they bid this world adieu…

For love brought them together…never again to be alone…
and here they lie together…their love immortalized in stone.
