My Everlasting Love - Poem by Holly Jamestone

Just in case I don't live
For as many years as planned
If we should part without the time
To take each other's hand
Please know how much I've treasured you
And each and every smile
Please know how deep my love has run
If only for this while

Just in case I leave before
We get to say goodbye
Keep smiling as you reminisce
And never question why
Please know how much I've treasured you
Through each and every day
And know I would have held you
Had I known I couldn't stay

Just in case you're feeling sad
Please let me soothe your heart
Allow yourself to feel me as though
We are not apart
Please know how much I've treasured you
With all the love I know
As I must be the lucky one
Whose time it is to go

Just in case this finds you
Feeling puzzled by my leaving
This message must be heaven sent
And meant for your receiving
Please know that I am smiling now
And as you carry on
Caress each memory that we made
As though I were not gone

Just in case there wasn't time
To have one final hug
A wink, a smile, a tender word
To give our hearts a tug
Please know how I am blessed by
All the goodness from above
Allow me now to pledge to you
MY EVERLASTING LOVE

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem inexplicably came to me years ago. I didn't realize its full significance until my cousin Patti died suddenly last month on January 14 and, when preparing to eulogize her, I noticed the day the poem was written: 1-14 of 2001. -hollyJ
