And Love Lingers On…

A poem for the old and infirm; to give them strength and help under the ambiance of love!

When all things
Done and said;
When all romantic lines
Used up;

When both have been
Through all chaos;
When life decides to
Leave behind stretch marks;

When laws of attraction
Fail easily;
When recollection is
The last thing on mind;

When the first enemy
Is separation;
When the worst nightmare
Is the other’s loss;

Let silence be
The best companion,
Let that one frail touch
Be like the first one;

Let the other’s smile be
The magical arch in the sky;
Let time and space
Start vanishing away;

Let love pour itself onto
The flickering candle of life;
Let memories fail
Such that love triumphs everyday;

Let the world give way
Wherever you walk;
Let love conquer
One and all!
