Stolen Nuptial- A Poem by Leslie Benton

As fast as any storm could drive,

Arrive in my heart you did

Breaking down all of the barriers

I swore to you could not be broken.

In a whirlwind of right and wrong

My soul married yours.

Even now, ten days past our parting

I feel your arms around me.

Ten days stolen from my vow to love you

And I can feel your lips gently brush my skin.

Ten days from the moment my heart died with you

I hear you whisper my name.

I shudder to think I could ever love anyone

as fiercely as I loved you.

Though my mind tells my heart

This isn’t so.

I see our lifetimes together

They wait for us on the horizon

Taunting, teasing, and bruising

The heart I’ve sworn over and over could not be broken again.

For my Jamie. May you rest in peace. I love you. 11/14/71 - 3/3/09

Wow that's sad hon. I feel for you. You will love again. Maybe in many different ways or maybe the same way but whatever you do love like you've never been loved before!
