Finding True Love Ways

In his heart he would never forget

The beauty and the love

That they once shared

It was unexpected

And then she was gone

So quickly and so suddenly

One moment a brilliant smile

Then death came

And took her away

He often wondered

What she wished for him

From the heavens above

How lonely he was

Every day he brought her

The roses she loved so much

He put them on her grave

Knowing she was beside him

But it was a place where he could share

The thoughts that came to his mind

He would softly sing to her

Their favorite song

And when he went back home

He knew she was with him

So one day when his thoughts

Were full of love

And the times they shared

He looked up above

And asked her to give him a sign

A sign that would tell him

That he could go on

That their love would never fade

But that a new love could heal his broken heart

It was then that he heard

A woman’s voice saying give me a sign

And he glanced about him

At that moment she too heard a man’s voice

That said give me a sign

And it was at that moment

The her eyes met his

They stared at one another

And realized they had been given

A sign that told them

That they could still find

True love ways

So that they would never be alone again

And they walked toward one another

Smiling that now they had each other

Leaving the cemetery hand in hand

They knew that two other people

Were looking down on them

Beaming from above

That they would never be

Lonely anymore

So beautiful! The loss of a loved one is so painful, and the healing takes its own sweet time. It is hard to let go, so we make frequent trips to the grave where our love lies. O, that we could get a sign at a time that the pain is so sweetly severe!

Thanks for sharing such sorrowful beauty.

I love the point you make of them not actually being in the grave but just a point of contact. I find that so true. ^
