Together Again

There was an old couple whose love was strong, their life together was happy and long. But one day the wife sadly passed away and the old man was left alone to stay. One life carrying a torch for the two, until a lifetime on this earth was through. Joined once again in a heaven to share, he longed for the day to see her there. A single flame burning deep in the night, held in a little room hidden from sight. Nearly touching and yet so far apart, kept barely alive in one lonely heart. One faithful morning the old man was gone, now reunited and never alone. 11/23/18

Oh, I've been worrying about this happening to my elderly uncle since my aunt passed about a decade ago. It took him a long time to find joy in his life again, but I believe him why he tells me there will never be another love in his life. Your poem brings back memories, Wren, and I am selecting you as a poet to follow. Congratulations on your well-earned win in Mark's contest! Best wishes, Carolyn

When my mother passed away I would worry about my father being lonely. He lived about five years after she passed. I wrote it with him on my heart and mind! Thank you Carolyn for commenting.
