A man loses more than his love.

He sits and thinks of man he used to know
That met a girl who’d one day change his life
He promised her he’d never let her go
As time went by engaged her as his wife
The day was blessed by sound of wedding bells
When on a book he swore they’d never part
He still recalls the feelings and the swells
This love to whom he’d dedicate his heart
It’s still unclear when challenges began
With each regret came worse one than before
Heartaches and tears was not within their plan
So all they were was swept through open door
Funeral bells were mourning on that day
When he and layers signed a man away

    Quite a meaningful poem. And a good one as usual.

    Beautiful and of course, sad, but beauty in its expression. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Which is worse: death or the death of love? Very emotional poem.

    Heart-touching. I would not know what to do if either love dies or someone I love dies. It would all be too much.
