Experts say love never dies,
It lingers, as years soften good-byes
A whisper within a heart of glass,
Strengthened by memories from the past

The body weak as mortality wanes,
Age a cruel mask exemplifies stains
Wrinkles like ripples on a lake,
Oscillate, augmenting in the wake.

Reverberating the day drawn a last breath,
Love living on even after death.
Renaissance in the heart of a child,
Softly lingering in depths of a smile.
