Eternal Love

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Eternal Love

I stand alone on the sandy beach

my tears flowing into the sea

because I know you’re out of reach

and no longer here with me

You looked so handsome laying there

In eternal sleep forever

The pain I hide is too much to bare

I want us to be together

But I am needed on this lonely land

for a little longer at least

to help and guide the people I love

giving them reassurance and peace

so I’ll be on the shoreline here

to cry more tears over you

On your birthday every year

to celebrate our love so true

Until it’s time to meet once more

to hold and love one another

as we did all those years ago

when I was your friend and lover.
