Her acidic tears

Trace a well-worn path

Down her crinkled cheek

To drip softly

Onto his grave

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

She misses him still

But the piercing grief

She once felt

Has receded to a

Dull ache

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

She gently caresses

His tombstone

And whispers softly

Words of endearment

Words still filled with love

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

But the dull ache

Of grief has strengthened

And little does she know

That she will get what

She has asked for many times

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Her worn body collapses

Falling gracefully

On top of his grave

And the moon watches

Over the two lovers

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

For eternity
