Till Death Do Us Part ~ Author Debra McLain


His gentle hands tuck the blanket,

around my weak and weary bones.

Placing a kiss upon my forehead,

he reminds me, I am never alone.


Sixty years ago, he made a vow;

to honor and cherish our love.

Till death do us part,

he promised God above.


The doctor gave disturbing news;

my health is declining fast.

Martin can no longer care for me;

in our home, this is my last.


Yesterday was Christmas;

we spent the day together.

Holding hands by the fireplace;

remembering promises of forever.


Martin goes and gets a gun;

and tells me to close my eyes.

I let a tear slip down my cheek,

as we both say our goodbyes.


My love for him will never cease;

I know he loves me so.

This final act was based on love;

he could not bear to let me go.


The bullet enters my heart,

and shatters my body, so frail.

He turns the gun upon himself;

“I’ll see you love, behind the veil”.
