HIS LOVELY BRIDE FOREVER

Like quills to poets their very souls were wed;
they wrote the lines together from the heart.
With reverence their fervent vows were said
that death and only death could make them part.

She was his lovely bride of years ago;
he still can see the sparkle in her eyes.
He knew without a doubt he loved her so;
she put the blue back in his darkened skies.

His orphan years had shown him life was sad,
but she was spring and summer both combined,
and he, a lonely, drifting, somber lad,
at last felt loved the day their souls entwined.

In forty years she's never left his side,
and in his heart she's still his lovely bride.
