"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."

They say you never know what you have until it’s gone
now I can say I proved this true
over time our love only grew.
Then, came the day I feared the most.
You promised me you’d be back soon,
you said you loved everything about me,
that I was perfect and I just wouldn’t see,
and I just knew he would always care
when I’m with him I lose my breathe and fight for air.

So many months have past
yet I still remember our days together from first to last.
We kept in touch by writing to each other
but after a while you stopped, I thought you didn’t bother.

I learned something terrible later that day
the General stopped by, said he had something important to say.
Said he died; he got shot in the arm, heart, and leg,
“Please tell me it’s not true!” I started to beg.
Crying and yelling I fell to the ground
and everything muted, there just wasn’t a sound.
I felt my end come near
and I started to tremble in fear.
I wanted to ask for his forgiveness
because he never stopped loving me, God, you and I are a witness.
Where my heart stood I felt a great pain
and my tears came down like heavy pouring rain.
Everything faded and then turned to white
and at the very last second I had him in sight.
I looked him straight in the eye
with the feeling of never saying goodbye,
took his hand and
we walked together down the road and into the light.

The author's comments:
The movie "Dear John" was an amazing film with a heart throbbing storyline. The movie inspired my poem in the part about the happy couple who ends up writing to each other because the guy goes off to war. However, in my poem, the guy dies and the girl ends up having a heart attack from the news and right before she dies she pictures him with her. I hope readers see that true love really never dies.
