True Love 

Sometimes in life, we share unconditional love and it's just wonderful. 

 

I loved you from the start,

Well

I have to admit

I checked your brother out first

 

But

Then my eye fell on you

And I knew,

That when the time was right

I would take you home

To share my bed.

 

I had no idea

That

You would steal so completely

Into my heart

And open up a love

I’ve never known

 

before

 

Or since.

 

A love untainted.

 

In all our time together,

You never made a promise you couldn’t

Keep.

 

We had a deep,

Understanding

You and I.

 

You were the only one,

Who never asked for

More than

I could give.

 

I could rely upon you

Right up until

That day

You passed

Away.

 

And left me.

 

With a hole in my heart

 

The shape of you.

 

You taught me how to live a

Full life.

A life of undemanding

Love.

 

Then you taught me how to have a

Good death

To move gently, without challenge,

Into the next phase.

 

I hope you will be waiting,

When my turn comes.

 

As I want to tell you

There was never another love

Like the one we shared.

 

My best boy.

My Oscar.

My cat.
