You said we’d be forever,
And I took you at your word.
But now we’re not together,
Something tragic has occurred.
I speak as if, you’re still here,
Your ghost is at my side.
But this isn’t what you promised,
Though I know you never lied.
It came as such a shock,
When they told me of your fate.
But, forever fools the best of them,
And forever took my mate.
