Wedding Band

Just a Love Story

Touch his face, she did lovingly
 
Though his cheeks rough with scraggly beard
 
She gazed at him fondly adoringly
 
But from her eyes lonely tears appeared
 
She caressed his frigid and bony hands
 
Rubbing gently his empty ring finger
 
Weeks ago slipped out his wedding band
 
As his dread malady continues to linger
 
Close to her heart she keeps the ring
 
In a necklace he gave her many moons ago
 
Hoping he puts it on again; her heart will sing
 
If only, if only: she prays it will be so!
