Her Writing Desk

by sweetwoodjax

Her writing desk gathers dust,
her pen no longer flows.
Her unfinished work
still waits for an ending.

Her last words will
never be shared with
the world, as he holds
them dear to his heart.

She was in the midst
of writing a love poem
when her heart ticked
its last beat.

Beautiful words of
poetry that spoke
of her love for him.

Everyday, he stops
by her desk to read
her last words. They
give him strength
to go on without her.

Then one night when
his time comes, she
will whisper her love
song to him and he
will join his true love again.


I was looking for a picture of pillows to go with a poem in a different direction, but this picture wouldn't let me go.
Thank you for the picture and inspiration Liilia.
