Until She Cried
She looked into his sea-green eyes,
Hoping his love for her was still alive
She cupped his handsome face in her hands,
She portrayed only her love---implying no demands.
She charted his face with her eyes of blue,
His hands were in her long blonde hair---then too.
She traced his lips,
With her silky-velvet fingertips.
She had to know if love still lived in his heart,
Before he left her---this time to be apart.
In the Twilight moments before it was dark,
She urgently looked-for---a tender spark.
She stood in the moonlight looking exquisitely forsaken,
She had only one heart to give---and it was taken.
She could heard his friend in the distance as they waited,
He knew this journey---she hated.
She knew his huge muscular body---had a heart inside,
Still he walked away---but none of her love died.
She tried to kiss his lips goodbye---but he turned his head,
Telling her their love was dead.
He gave her a quick look---then jumped on his bike,
She watched his Harley go out-of-sight---he and his friends were so alike.
She thought---I will never be his bride,
So dejected---she cuddle their baby closer to her side.
She was being strong---his jade eyes smiled looking up at her face,
She said--Mama will take care of you my darling---in this very place.
The baby cooed and smiled---until she cried,
For on this day a love had died.
In The later Years
Silence was reverent after the preacher prayed,
Lavender roses were softly placed on her coffin---now where she laid.
Her son was twenty now---very much of a man,
His jade eyes were shining with tears unshed---he
wiped them away with his huge hand.
In the shadows of a cherry tree---stood an older version of him,
A man whose jade eyes had not dimmed.
Everyone had left the grave site,
All but her son---he stood there until night.
The older man stayed in the dark shadows from the moon,
All night they stood---until the next day---it was noon.
Her son knelt and said, “Mama I will be back---I love you.”
Then the older man came forward and knelt too.
He asked her to forgive him for being a fool---then he cried in this quiet place,
Suddenly a warm soft breeze caressed his still handsome face---
Then he knew,
She had always loved him too.
Their son stood in the shadows watching his dad,
He had promised her forgiveness of him---but not now--- he was too sad.
They both walked out together---not a word was spoken,
They both knew her heart had been broken.
The older man got into his car,
He was tired and---his journey would be far.
Their son gave his dad a quick look---then jumped on his bike,
The father watched his son's Harley go out of site,
The last glimpse of his son would probably be his last---he sighed,
Until he cried.
