A Love Till the End of Time

They never thought

That their love would go astray

Never thought that love could end

It happened on a quiet night

When the moon was full and bright

They sat side by side

Sharing dreams

Counting the stars above

It was while they were dancing

That it happened

Neither he nor she had anything left to say

He thought of saying I love you

She thought of sharing a kiss

But as it happened neither he nor she

Felt the same way as before

There was an awkward silence

So they just let it be

As she was leaving

He thought of the why

He thought of what had gone wrong

She didn’t say anything

Just sadly smiled and said good-bye

It was during the sleepless night

When he tossed and turned

That he realized he’d never

Said words like forever

Never said words like never leave

Whenever they spoke of love

There seemed a lot left unsaid

He pondered with a heart that was aching

While she lay crying

Thinking their romance was going nowhere

She couldn’t imagine her life

Without him

But he didn’t seem to really care

So there they lay

Miles apart

Each longing for the other

I was when the sun rose in the sky

That he knew without her he’d die

When she awoke from her troubled sleep

It was to the ringing doorbell

Suddenly the world was steady again

There he stood

With a dozen roses

And a diamond ring

Vowing everlasting love

Beautiful, Rasma! I'm so glad they didn't let their love die. What a nice way to wake up. What could be better than Prince Charming, roses, and diamonds!

Gypsy, this was beautiful and well done. The perfect way to say, I love you. What girl could say no to a shinning diamond and red roses? :)
