True Love Poem

This poem was written about my in-laws. Married for 44 years.

Eternal Devotion

© Wt Bakelar
Devotion for his Sweetheart, He stood close by her side,
And held her hand through good and bad,
His love he would never hide,

When she gave him children, He upheld his part,
And held their hands through good and bad,
And loved them with all his heart,

With all the years together, He doted on his bride,
And held her hand through good and bad,
Just to be close by her side,

Then her body weakened, He pushed her to be strong,
And held her hand through good and bad,
But knew they wouldn’t have long,

Devotion for his Sweetheart, He loved this woman so,
And held her hand the day she died,
He could not let her go,

Now by her grave he whispers, When I get to the other side,
I’ll hold your hand through Eternity,
Forever you’ll be my Bride.
