Eternal Love

Eternal Love1.jpg
They blazed a trail
in their dance of togetherness
The path a bitter-sweet expression
Of joy/sorrow, pain/pleasure
Laughter/tears, empathy/respect...
Colorful starbursts
on the firmament of love.

Destiny warped the fairytale...
Put a stranger's hand in hers!
"Inevitable", said she.
Alone stood he.
Gazing down a bottomless abyss.
Eyes shut, fists clenched
He leaped
Sprouted wings and drifted off
on the wind of Faith.

Wistfully she watched
her love gliding away
Then remembered his parting gift '
A golden receptacle to hold
their crystallized tears.
Encased in that glass orb
His ruby-red heart smiled
Tenderly clasped by her own

And, inscribed on their sweet embrace
He read
Our Love is Forever
