Poem:Love Is For Real:Dedicated to Walter and Betty King

Living Proof

They were living proof, that Love is for Real

Anyone who knew them and loved them, saw the evidence of what true love is all about

Never did she speak ill of him or he of her in mixed company

There home was always a place of harmony a quiet still place

He had his place and she had hers and they seem to fit perfectly

He would nicely direct you to where she was in the home as he greeted you at the door

And she with her smile that was so welcoming and sometimes she would say "Did you see Walter"? Just confirming that he was OK and in his usual place the entry to their home that seemed to be the entry way to their heart, always welcoming, peaceful and inviting

They grew up together and were married for over Forty something years!

Amazing, Because we all know that for a relationship to have spanned over centuries,

They must have shared storms, trials and tribulation, yet, somehow they beat the 50 to 50 odds that they wouldn't make it

She his Queen and he her King. An example for us all that true love can last till death do us part

True love can survive each other, the world, and anything else that comes it way

True love can fulfill the promise of death do us part and we will not part till death

All of us can only hope for such a commitment, dream of such love, strong enough to span for over Forty something years till his last breath and her last tear.

So, Humbly, I dedicate this writing to the two of them, Walter King and his Queen(Betty King). May he rest in Peace knowing that in the hearts of those that love him, He lives forever!
