It's Always Been You

It’s been five long years since I kissed your barren nape, oh…from this tormented sorrow it’s so hard to escape- There have been days of pain with tears that won’t end, our family and friends have hands that they lend. When the cancer came and took you away, I needed answers with unspoken words to say- The mountains crumbled, the reveries all ran dry, I just can’t let go, no matter how hard I try. When I visit your tomb, I swear I can smell your scent, for you my darling, have been heaven sent- When I see marble surround your lovely name, I’m full of regret, for it’s disease that I blame. Once a week I bring you flowers in honor of our love, now you soar freely up high like an ivory dove- No words can save, no wounds can be sutured, for we had anticipated such a long loving future. You were my mate to my soul, my line to my life, I am just so grateful you were my faithful wife- One day we shall meet and reverie shall fill, until my final breath… I shall love you still. You were my medallion ray, my sweet Leanna Rose, we shared a love that nobody knows- Next week when I come I shall lay more flowers, for I shall count the seconds, minutes and hours. With a love like ours, love can never be wrong, I know my love, it’s been you all along- So, when you see me below at your tomb with grace, remember how once, we encompassed our embrace. I needed you then and I’ll need you forevermore- For my sweet girl… it’s always been you that I adore. September 19, 2017
