Beyond Midnight

He lay awake and hoped to die,
Hot tears were rolling down his cheeks:
The Cancer took his wife that night
(Although she’d bravely fought for weeks).

The clock was striking half past twelve;
A sudden light appeared and shone;
His wife was smiling, touched his hand,
She whispered love - and then was gone…

For Andrea’s One in Three, Write Beautifully contest

    I like the word of description by a couple of the previous poets comments..."haunting", though this is placed under a good light, a haunting of a lover who came to say farewell to her husband who grieves completely for her! This should help him a little to deal with his loss! I really loved reading this fantastic poem here this evening my friend! What a tremendous piece, Quite the wonderful poem, Great Work!!
