The Portrait of Love

The painting hung meticulously upon the parlor wall
He would stare at it for hours each night upon his return
A piece of him went with her that day she left this earth
Yet, he smiled in knowing that love carried on, eternally

He would stare at it for hours each night upon return
As it was his way of unwinding, unraveling the day
Her beautiful smile lit his heart and his fragile mood
He remembered the sun, the moon, her gentle ways

A piece of him went with her that day she left this earth
For since that horrid day he was never quite as complete
Never thinking that he’d get through, be able to move on
For without her, he originally thought love to be deplete

Yet, he smiled in knowing that love carried on, eternally
He found he was able to carry her within him, each new day
He may love again, someone, some other time, perhaps
As for now, she is with him and forever will she stay
