A Promise of Love…

He sits holding her hand
As she smiles looking at him
“I love you”, she says at last
And a silent tear from his eye
Replies, “Forever”.

They have waited this hour
For countless sleepless nights
One minute more he pleads
As they hold on to each other
But only with fear.

The hour is now long gone
As he stares at her still smile
His last prayer for a miracle
Have long been snatched away
On that hospital bed.

A promise of love begins
As love lies there unmoved
He smiles a tear at last
As a heart groans out the truth
Love wins when lovers lose.
