Poem for those who have lost a mate
« on: June 10, 2011, 06:49:38 PM »
I found this poem in a book back in March and just today located that book again.  Sorry if this is a repeat for anyone.

One or the other must leave,
One or the other must stay.
One or the other must grieve,
That is forever the way.
That is the vow that was sworn,
Faithful 'til death do us part.
Braving what had to be borne,
Hiding the ache in the heart.
One, howsoever adored,
First must be summoned away.
That is the will of the Lord
One or the other must stay.    ~Anonymous

So much truth in this poem. :(

Very true ... I just always assumed that I'd be first to go, not that I'd be the one watching the walls close in on me.

Thanks for sharing this,
