She Never Once Stopped Loving Him - Poem by Loyd C. Taylor, Sr.

She decided to drop by, not knowing he had left that day;
As she pulled into his drive, they were taking him away.
I told her we had tried to call, when we knew his time had come;
She went running down the hall and in his bedroom sat alone.

She saw their pictures on his wall, her love letters on his bed;
One by one she read them all, the 'I Love Yous' all marked in red.
She let herself slip back in time, when their love was strong and true;
She could see them in her mind, the way they were in 62.

She took his picture in her hands, kissed it time and time again;
She walked slowly from his room, wedding ring still on her hand.
As she stared down at his grave, she cried; 'O God what have I done? '
Then she told us all that day, 'He's the only love I've known! '

'She never once stopped loving him! 'She came back to let him know.
Soon she'll join him onces again, she never once stopped loving him.

You know…

She came to his grave one last time, we never thought it would end this way;
Some say she finally lost her mind, you see, they found her body on his grave.

She never once stopped loving him, she came back to let him know.
She's now with him once again, she never once stopped loving him.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'He Stopped Loving Her Today' has been credited by so many to be the greatest country love song ever written; the writers are R. V. Braddock and C. Putman, Jr. I do not deny that claim, I love the song as do many, it is so sad, but speaks of true love.
Their song speaks of a love so true that the man goes to his grave loving a woman, and yet for some reason they were separated. Who knows, maybe a lover's quarrel.
In their song, it is mentioned that she came back to see him one last time. I pick up the story and tell about her return trip in my song.
What he did not know was that she never stopped loving him. They both die of a broken heart and maybe one that could have been repaired if it were not for lover's pride.
You may here the musical arrangement of this by checking it out on YouTube, Loyd Tayloy, under the title, 'He Stopped Loving Her Today's Sequel 'She Never Once Stopped Loving Him'.
I hope you enjoy, Loyd
