‘Love Never Fails’

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. – I Corinthians 13:8

Love Never Fails
By Brian

Almost eighty-nine years
She has lived
She has dreamed
She has laughed
And she has loved
Oh, how she has loved…

Life may turn joy to pain
And laughter to tears
It may steal away our dreams
One by one
And rip away all we know
And hold dear
But life can never
Ever
Destroy love

The future looks oh so bleak
And the past…
Nothing but memories
Lots and lots of memories
Precious things so easily lost
In the depths of the mind
But love doesn’t fade
Love always remains

So, for now
She’ll laugh through her pain
She’ll smile through her tears
Bravely facing the unknown
And she’ll love
Oh, how she’ll love…

  1. Brian,

    what a beautiful poem and moving tribute. Our prayers are with your neighbor-friend. She is blessed to have such good neighbors. We reap what we sow… and we eat what we reap.
