During the war while the world fought and wept
A love was discovered when two young souls met
They found one another at a dance one clear night
Their hearts filled with hopes dreams and awe
And in their embrace they knew they had found
A passion for all to adore
He was her world and she was his
Together they were content
No matter how bad the hardship and turmoil
That daily life in those times meant
How much can a person love another
To measure it doesnt seem fair
But if one did attempt to judge their love
You couldnt find a more suited pair
Their love it would last a lifetime
It was so pure and selfless and bright
And it would prove to be an inspiration
To all those touched by its light
All the beauty in the world was reflected tenfold
When they would gaze into each others eyes
A love this beautiful that fills the soul
Never truly dies
And now he waits in heaven
Patiently for his bride
For one day when the time is right
To meet him by his side
And when their souls are reunited
The very Heavens will rejoice
And we’ll see the light so bright from Heaven
lighting up the world
This is dedicated to my beautiful grandmother Rose in memory of my grandfather Brian, who sadly passed away last month.
Their love truly has been inspirational aswell as the strength, passion and character they both possess.
