One Single Tear - Poem by Sandra Finch

Nearly fifty years together, he was always at her side.
Mom feels so alone since the day dad died.
Alone in thier empty home every night and day,
She just sits in her rocker, passin' the time away.

One single tear falls now they're apart,
As she clutches his picture close to her heart.
They vowed to love til thier lifes were through,
Now one single tear falls, her loves' ever true.

She's lived a good life, now in her twilight years,
She remembers in her heart, the laughter, the tears.
She recalls his warms eyes as she kissed him good-bye,
He said, ' I'll be waitin' for you, to be back at my side.'

She still feels his warm touch, sees the glow in his eyes
Hears him say, 'I Love You', as she tries not to cry.
But, one single tear falls as she relives her past,
Wanting to go home-to her love as last.
