Sword Of Fate - Poem by Willem VanVoorthuysen

How razor sharp,
how inescapably fast,
the flashing sword of fate
when, finally it struck
to cut the life-long bond
between the two of us, forever...
Not fast enough, alas to kill
the ice-cold pain inside
that hit me when I realized
that our togetherness had
indeed become a dream,
our happiest moments
mere memories...
