    dots"One Day In May"dots

    The Sun smiled brightly down
    on the twenty-fifth of May;
    a couple at the Altar
    pledged to honor and obey.

    They both were young, and desperately in love;
    they took one's breath away!
    They pledged a life together
    on that lovely day in May.

    He promised to always love her,
    to stay through thick and thin;
    to ever be beside her,
    and always be her man.

    In sickness and in health
    they solemnly pledged their love!
    They promised one another,
    and pledged to God above.

    They spent happy years together
    and shared both work and play!
    They never regretted the promise
    that they made that day in May.

    Some fifty plus years later
    at a grave under clouds of gray,
    a lovely, graceful widow
    brushed caring tears away.

    When asked to speak her final words
    before they went away,
    she paused and thought a moment,
    and then was heard to say;

    "He was a loving, caring husband
    whom I loved every precious day,
    who kept each and every promise
    that we made one day in May".

      Love endures all things and this couple stayed the distance. It made me feel there is permanence in human relations. Thanks Ron.

      Beautifully written Ron, well done friend. My wife and I celebrated our 41st anniversary in January, so it was a good read for me. Thank you.

      It is pathetic to let a caring and loving husband to go away forever. The couple was fortunate to have found eachother and had such a lovely life. That day in May was really precious as is this beautiful poem.
