South Carolina, USA
I knew this day would come, I prepared for it.
But...even as much as I prepared, I wasn’t strong.
I felt feelings stronger than my own soul
I lost the game of strength, my heart was weak.
How could I ever prepare for a moment so touching
A moment when I could not touch you, hold you.
A minute of time when you needed me there
An eternity of love lying before me, before us.
You asked my words, yet I fumbled and almost fell.
My pause reflecting my fears, my own anxiety
I walked away momentarily, my mind failing me.
My heart spoke before my lips could ever say.
I will count the moments until I again see you
My breath will not frost before me till then
I will hope, pray and ever want this for you
For I will love you tenderly until I die.
