The Parting

Their bond was deeper, richer, and more than what many call true love,
But no other words exist to describe it better.
Pleasant years of joyfully, faithfully serving one another would soon end.
A new age was upon them, one where they would no longer be – together.

Nearing their bittersweet goodbye, foreknown, but always so far away,
Closer now than ever, they shared their last touch and tear filled words,
The heartbeat faded…
It was over, beautifully tender, yet simply awful.

A farewell kiss no one else could fully comprehend.

Love, forever impacting them and others, parting, still strong,
Slipping beyond time and the physical world,
Falling into the Hands of Heaven.

Behind the lines

The last enemy to be destroyed is death. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:26
