Love withstands

Love withstands the distance,

and the grief of separation,

that loss of flesh and smell

and touch and taste of you,

of all you were and might

have been, of all you are

and we might dream, of all

that life delivered, then

denied and took away so

suddenly, determinedly,

so painfully and cruelly,

and yet, you were here, we

did meet, we did touch,

we did love and we do

still love and it is that love

which can never be removed,

for love, even if it exists

for just a second, will then

last forever, and forever.
