To My Beloved Lloyd - Poem by Toy Gibson

He made me a queen the day that we met
He never said No to whatever I said
I could ask for the moon, and it came on a platter
Whatever I said, no way did it matter
We've lived a full life, and did as we pleased
With happiness galore that came with such ease
So I know I could leave, and therefore be free
But wait just a minute, would he do that to me?
When I wrote one time that our travels may end
I forgot that two lives in different ways bend
I am trapped by a love that is too strong to fight
The painful condition of my true loves plight
My love has found he can't go on a spree
But I cannot say "I would like to be free"
I cannot just think what I want to do
I have to adjust because we are two
My wings are clipped even tho I am able
The decision of love is right on the table
This I very well know I could still fly away
I know my love needs me so right here I'll stay
But God felt his suffering was more than was fair
He felt he would be happier if He took him up there
I did not want him to hurt, but it is hard to accept
He is in Gods good hands now, so I know he is blessed.
