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
