Love unrequited

Love so brand new

They knew it instantly

 When they came into view


Like a missing piece to a puzzle

And the magic it brings

 God joined them together

 When he gave her his ring


Two souls that needed

Only one heart

Where her sentence left off

His began to start


After sixty five years

Of wedded bliss

Only having an “US”

 Not hers…not his


 Walking through life together

 Happily as one

But before it was over

Said and done


As she slowly walked

Up Heavens golden stairs

He whispers softly

I will meet you there


And eighty eight minutes

 After his love passed that day

Her loyal soul mate

Faded away


This bittersweet moment

Life’s true tale

That love conquers all

Without fail


Their life was made full

By our Blessed King

 It goes to show

What true love means


They said he died

 From a broken heart

 But I think it was a beginning

A divine new start


 So rest in peace

And with the angels sing

 This love story that started

When he gave her his ring
