Bern and Tom

Love Poems

She looks lovingly into his eyes,
As if she sees the world in them.
He holds her next to him closely,
As if he thinks she would leave him.
She could never leave him.

True love cannot stop death, however.
And one day, he left her.
She learned to carry on.

She taught me something that year,
Something I’m sure I’ll never forget.
Death cannot stop true love.

They’re both gone now; death has taken them.
I’m sure they’re okay, though. After all,
It wouldn’t be heaven without each other.

This was inspired by an old photograph of my grandparents. May they rest in peace. <3

And yes, I did quote The Princess Bride. It's my favorite movie. >___>
