Man and Wife – Poem: survival, loss, love, commitment

together still

together still

Man and Wife

His unwilling legs have felt such pain
his eyes have seen such sorrow
his worn down heart such loss
his tears have no tomorrow
for loves he can’t regain

Three dead children haunt his nights
their memories ghost his days
his survival defies all sense
courage shadows all his ways
love his history requites

Soon, not too soon, he’ll go
a journey long delayed
but they will go together
for together they have stayed
to share a love that few can know

Together they defiant wait
beyond all hurt at last
glasses raised heads unbowed
they have overcome their past
and triumphed over fate
