Dedicated to Sally and Moe “Because You Both Knew”

Because you both knew

You had been given the terrible news
That the winds of change
Were around the bend
That your dreams would soon
Come to an end.
The news were staggering
Breaking your heart
The fabric of your union
They were intent to rip apart.

But because you were forewarned
Because you knew Sally

Like if it were the last time everyday
You made sure to see him fall asleep
You tucked him more tightly
And pray the Good Lord
Not to let him see you weep

Because you knew

Before you left his bedside
You would give him one more kiss
And then come back for one more
For those kisses you were soon going to miss
And tiptoed softly and
Left ajar the door.

Because you knew
You thought

I will watch your sleep, your wake, your smile
And take you deep in my heart and memory
So that I will have you still in me
When you are finally free
Of this horrific, painful disease.

Because you knew

I was able to do all of this
And tell you
This is not the ending
My darling Moe
Our love is strong
And so is its will
Our love will always live
For my heart is with you still

And even if he was too tired
For he was too weak
He would smile and look at her
And to her a thousand words
He would speak.

And because they both knew
He said

I’ll see you in Paradise
One beautiful day
Where there won’t be any
Pain and aches
No. We won’t find each other this way.
Our bodies will be perfect
They will not decay.
So don’t be sad\hold me close
Deep in your heart
In that way Sally
We will never be apart.
But there is something
I need for you to do for yourself
Well, if not for you, then for me
Just keep on smiling
Like you’ve always done
Let your heart sing for me
In order to do so
You have to let it be free
Please do all of the wonderful things
We used to do
And I’ll be there
Doing them with you.
Show the world the love we’ve known
Show them that our flame still burns.

All of these things he told her so tender
With his eyes and smile
And as he drifted away from her
She knew one day they would again
Be together.

All of this they said to each other
All because they knew.

Artist's Description

When we heard about Sally Omar’s husband’s passing, her beloved Moe, I didn’t have any words to express to her. Now, I have found some words, upon reading again her words in I Told Him

Though I wasn’t there, this is how I imagined their last days together through her words. I hope she likes this.
