LOVE STORY - Poetry Contest

My love, you roped all the stars for me
My life you held in your hands
As children we swam in cold blue seas
Sculpting castles in warm wet sands

My fairy tale prince in childhood dreams
Certain that I’d marry you
You garnered my sun and my moon beams
Time passed, my love only grew

Entrusting whispered secrets to keep
Guarding hopes and dreams with care
Twin souls in love, impassioned and deep
No doubts you’d always be there

Alas forever, was meant to be
Three days before we were wed
A fool and drink took your life from me
I wanted to die instead

Such pain I’d never known in my life
My soul surely broke in two
My heart was pierced with grief’s jagged knife
The seam of my life unglued

My heart, my soul, I’ll miss you forever
I feel you though I can’t see
My tears will fall 'til we’re together
Without you I'm half of me.
