Poem: "Move On, Move On…"

A tribute to my grandparents and their enduring love…

Walking the mall hand in hand
A pause to share a light, chaste kiss

Move on, move on…

Smiles from strangers who pass
To see these two elders still so in love

Move on, move on…

So long together they’ve always been
Still holding hands, gazing ‘pon t’other with love

Move on, move on…

Now clinging to life, so hard to let go
Not for himself but still for her

Move on, move on…

He hangs by a prayer and a hope
A hope to lift a hand to her brow once more

Move on, move on…

So many years for her he worked
For only her comfort, her joy

Move on, move on…

At peace now, for he knows
I promise she’ll not be forgotten

Move on, move on…

Ahead now he flies on to Heaven
There to await, again to take her hand

Move on, move on…

Lain for so long in the home of the forgotten
She always remembers her lover

Move on, move on…

The once lively eyes unfocused
Seeing who knows not what or where

Move on, move on…

So soon once he’d gone now it seems
She’s hurrying along for to follow

Move on, move on…

Not yet a year had gone past
Before she lay, herself to life tightly clinging

Move on, move on…

Told now it’s alright, go head, now move on
He’s gone ahead, is waiting Above for you

Move on, move on…

Passed on now to Heaven, to her lover
Hand in hand for all Eternity they walk

Move on, move on…
