My Vow

troth2

It was 40  years ago

I took him as Husband

We Loved

We Comforted

We Honoured

And protected each other

We forsook all others

Faithfully

Contentedly

He took me as Wife

We had

We held

Through Better

Through Worse

Richer

Poorer

Healthy

Sick

And everything in between

troth3We Loved

We Cherished

We Respected

We Grew

We Aged

We Laughed

We Cried

And still I cry

But now

I cry alone

For death came and parted us

Suddenly

Silently

Vows made before God

Were supposed to end

There and Then

But right now

My Head

My Heart

Do not know how to stop
