my head nods forward
my senses return
my loving partner exactly where he was
by my side
the one who vowed to love me
till death do us part
his comforting hold when I fall apart in pain.
I feel blessed to be so loved by another
knowing he’ll be there by my side
when I close my eyes on this world
and gently release from his embrace
into God’s loving hands.
I love you, so, Frank
husband, friend, lover of mine
when I gently release from your embrace
you’ll be there in my heart forever.
