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