THE SCHOOLTEACHER
AND THE LIBRARIAN


Beneath the tombstone,
Carved and gray,
The loving pair
Together lay.
For fifty years
They were ne’er apart,
One died of cancer,
One - a broken heart.
The town has grieved
And shed its tears,
For this beloved couple
Of so many years.
They filled our lives
With wit and charm,
Not the typical
Librarian and school ‘marm’.
We know by now
They have come face to face
With Eternal Life
And Holy Grace.
God embraces them,
Knows well, their names.

“Welcome, my beloved sons,
Jeremy and James”.





I be me BUT who does me be?

This is a lovely write, with a neat twist at the end.

I'm a reader - not a writer.

(big hugggsssssssss) Oh Das, God Bless You, this is sooooooo beautiful, it saddened me to see the other die with a broken heart but then I also know their love is true and they will spend eternity forever happily ever after and brought a smile through my tears! (angel hugs) This is gorgeous, sweet friend, yay, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Das, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

This is nice.  I like the fast-paced flow, it was a very easy read.  I also quite like the title, it really caught my attention.

Good work, SPIRIT.

SPIRIT,
Such an excellent write. Brings peace to my heart just at the thought. Gets my vote.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Funny! I don't consider this really sad - they had 50 devoted years together. Their relationship was a lot longer than a lot of marriages. They were respected and loved by their neighbors and they made their transition basically together.  Then they were embraced lovingly and welcomed by Him who matters most. Thanks for all the kind remarks, I have to say this is one of my favorites.

I didn't get this as particularly sad, I really liked the message of 'acceptance' it gave.

I really liked this poem. Probably the best of yours that I have read. I liked the ending so very very much because it breaks the mold of so many different stereotypes that we can tend to have concerning love and choice of profession, etc. etc. Very good poetry!!!
