how the rain preserves
does it not?
this poem of yours
states that quite beautifully
thus so
it brings to mind these
haunting words
...and long after death
her memory he did so tenderly
a man faithful to a memory
how often do we find that
it is a strength of character
that one cannot compromise
think of the foundations of self
that such undying love supported
and through so many heart shattering
for some
love is a spear
but for you
in this composition of honor
and timeless adoration
it is a shield
proving that love indeed is
the supreme protector
of all battered spirits
and hearts that have been left out
in the cold for far too long
your love is a testament to the
inner wonder that is
the real you
the astonishingly beautiful
always giving soul
that masked by the flesh it is
housed in
peaked out from behind all those
bruises, cuts and scars
to show the world even in
the most terrible of circumstances
love never dies
love never gives up
love does indeed
conquer all
and rebuilds with the ruins
