True Love is Forever ~ Author Debra McLain

They fell in love under a sunset.

Colors lit up the sky, so bright.

Promises of forever.

Married by moonlight.


War, took him to a foreign land.

Letters; written from dark places.

Fear took over every thought.

His safety; she searched for traces.


Dreams of him; brought smiles.

For in them, she had hope.

Night time brought her comfort.

A sleeping mind let her cope.


A knock on the door;

at an unsuspected time.

The news she feared most;

his life, taken by a mine.


Her love came home,

his casket bearing a flag.

She placed a kiss on his lips;

gently clutching his tags.


They now circle her neck,

a hug from him, to keep.

The tears, they fall in torrents,

her grief, a cut so deep.


Their love is so strong;

death will not change her ‘forever’.

She holds onto memories.

For, someday, they will be together.
