This Love Never Dies

Posted By Proud Military Widow, Shenneth Canegata

This love never dies
It continues to grow
Even though you are not here
It is watered
By smiles, “I love you’s” and gentle hugs and kisses
Long gone
It is watered by tender looks and memories
Of days since past, yet more alive than ever
I don’t expect them to understand
But I do
This love never dies
Though seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years have passed
It is watered by the very essence of “YOU”
That is stronger than time
Stronger than life
Stronger than me
Your love, your legacy
This love never dies
It is watered by moments shared
Nurtured by the knowledge
That it keeps me going
With each passing day
You went away
Not by choice
Because I know that you would stay
If you could
You are not here
But your love is
It never dies
It soothes me, calms me, empowers me
To keep moving
To keep doing
To keep living
Creating and growing
Your love
Just like my love
“Our” love never dies
It withstands the test of time
The test of life lost
Yet alive
This love — “Our Love” — “Your Love” — “My Love” never dies

    Thank you for sharing, so eloquently, the sentiments that so many of feel and are often misunderstood. Too many believe that because the love lies on that we cannot move forward – but you have captured that in your words. Thank you for sharing.
    In “Ghost” Patrick Swayze said it well “the love you feel, it doesn’t die, you get to take it with you.”
    God bless and give you strength on your journey.

      Your poem speaks to my heart. With your permission, I want to print out your poem and frame it for my wall. It speaks to me of my wife, Connie.
