Selfless Love

November 7, 2009
On a dark, desolate evening
An old man can be found grieving
His once thriving lover
Can be found sick under the cover

Her dying hand he would hold
Her once vibrant heart now cold
Body and mind relied on machine
Keeping her alive by any mean

Doctors in white come rushing in
Asking the man for a final decision
He lowered his head in a frigid mist
And prayed to anyone who could assist

With no response he got to his feet
Released her hand and proclaimed defeat
Selfless love he did give
Through his life she now would live
