Gently, he took her hand in his
As he kissed her petal soft cheek.
She gazed into his deep, hazel eyes.
Her blue eyes slightly dampened from tears.
She felt as though she had failed once more.
He comforted her as he always did.
He told her how perfect and beautiful she was.
How her eyes sparkled when she talked of their life.
He told her how kind, how thoughtful to others she was,
How she touched those who ached,
How everyone loved her, except herself.
The tears softly flowed like drops of rain down her cheeks
As she listened to each word he uttered.
“I’ll love you, my dear, till the seas are all dry.”
And knew she would be his forever.
