Golden Memories Shine

Love may come and love may go

you’ll hear people say

that only love that is true

is love that will forever remain

these things she had heard

so very often in her life

but as one love forsook her for another

she soon kept her heart

under lock and key

the day he came into her life

was a day when she thought

that the dark of night would follow her

surely for the rest of her life

no ray of sun ever shown in her lonely world

no words of love were ever heard

he was like the drop of rain

she had longed for

in her life so thirsty for love

he was the one who made her smile

after such a long time had passed

but she was wary

and doubted what he said

being so entrance by her beauty

so lost in all that she was about

he could feel her pain and sorrow

and he vowed to make her world

a world of love from now on

but a man who steps into a world like this

sometimes has more than he can handle

and though he vowed his love

he could see that she was still unmoved

hiding behind all the troubles

that she had gone through

still remembering all the heartbreak

not ready to trust in love again

when he tried and time after time

failing to melt her cold, cold heart

he thought it was time to move on

before his own heart

began to ache

before he was so in love

that his feet would no longer stray

he left behind a tender letter

that professed all of his love

that told her she was his light in the morning

his comfort when night came

his burning desire

his eternal flame

as she read the letter

slowly her heart began to beat

beat with a love

she thought she’d never feel again

and so she ran

to find him boarding a bus

and she shouted simply

“I love you, I really do!”

he turned and saw her

like in a golden light

her red hair flaming

like the sunset

upon the horizon

and then they were in each other’s arms

knowing that their love

was meant to be

knowing they would love one another

for a lifetime and into eternity

Thank goodness she didn't let true love slip away! I guess there's a knight in shining armor for everyone, even those who have locked their hearts behind walls of pain.
