Love and Life Can Fade Away

Updated on April 7, 2016

If the stars were mine to give

I’d give them all to you

upon a platter made from the moon

your love is what saved me

from living a lonely life

but love must be treasured

for one day love can just fade away

let’s live each day

leaving precious memories behind

for one day life can fade away

one of us might have to fly

while the other one has to stay

let’s fill our hearts with love

so pure and true

to be one for always and ever more

love can last a lifetime

but a lifetime can be a short time

so share each day

as if it were as fragile as glass

for life can one day

simply fade away

love can take flight

in just one night

so be mine for the lifetime

we are given

without you I couldn’t begin again

before love can fade away

before life can fade away

to be yours eternally

I wish my love for you would always shine as bright

and hand in hand walk into paradise with you

      Yes, like Ruby, I like that line too. Something sublime about being together to the end. Ha ha. Excellent Poem.

      Hi Rose, what a lovely poem. Great poetry and lovely sentiments, more so for a person who has loved and lost.
