A Love To Last - Poem by Joseph Anderson

We stole each others heart away,
With hope, with dreams and care;
E'er knowing love would pave the way
For blissful times we'd share.

So oft we trod those peaceful hills,
When love was sweet and new;
Twas there that passion lit the spark
From whence our family grew.

Then death made claim, that fated day,
Amidst the tears we cried
And now, my dear, I see so clear,
Our love has never died.

To soon, in time I'll follow you
Across that great divide;
Together now, forevermore,
Together, side by side.

2001

    Your love is transcendental and touches the non-physical realm. It ends optimistically with belief to meet the departed soul. (Report) Reply

    The poem is heartachingly brilliant! My favorite line:

    Then death made claim, that fated day,
    Amidst the tears we cried
    And now, my dear, I see so clear,
    Our love has never died.
