A Love Till the End

Updated on March 11, 2015

His friends would laugh

shake their heads

to think that he

would still believe

that his lost love

would return to him

she had found a new love

had gone away

there had been nothing more to say

cause when the tears

threatened to fall

he kept standing tall

convinced till the bitter end

that she’ll be coming home again

she once had told him

that she would love him

till the stars no longer shone

till there would be no sun in the sky

and in his way he believed

and kept her promise in his heart

as the years rolled by

surrounded by friends

he would never let them see

the hurt inside

he would always laugh and say

you’ll see she’ll be back some day

when the letter came

her daughter wrote

sorry to cause you pain

my mom loved you till the end

for fifteen years she no longer lived in this world

she lived in the world

where she knew you and loved you

perhaps it was wrong

to not let you know sooner

but you see the reality was painful

yesterday she passed away

like a shining star

here and now gone

still loving you

it was then that he cried

for all those lost years

thinking that she loved someone else

thinking she no longer cared

and now this letter was his trophy

he read to his friends

he let them know

that she would be waiting

the first one to greet him

in heaven above

they still told him

to keep on living

to give up on this dream

she was gone

and someday she would be waiting

but now was for living

for giving and for loving

but he turned a deaf ear

and so he lived

knowing she was near

and he was happy and content

until the angels came

he died with a happy smile

and the last words he said were,

“Honey, I’m coming to you”.

      Gypsy Rose,

      "...when the letter came..."

      Lovely account of something emotive. I like it!

      Often the vibrations of a daughters thoughts are not heard until the appointed time, your word usage is very "right on."
