Love Conquers All !!

 

By: Joe Attanasio 2011

 

 

 

 

Sparks were flying when I met you,

Some 40 years ago.

Six months later we married,

Our love a raging fire.

 

I could hold you in my arms,

And watch hours fly by.

Our dreams were endless,

Our sprits soared.

 

We were so much alive,

Not a hint of pain.

We hiked the mountains,

And walked the shores.

 

Pain crept up on you,

Like ivy on a wall.

It started in one foot,

You shook it off.

 

Over time your back got weak,

You tried your best to shake it off.

Alignment crumbled,

The back was lost.

 

Then your joints began to ache,

Fingers stiff and gnarly.

Nerve pain raced from hips to feet,

Your legs on constant fire.


 

 

The doctors shook their heads,

No fix was in sight.

Try to make you comfortable,

The best that they could do.

 

Your body ached,

Your mind sighed.

The future was bleak,

The pain unbearable.

 

Your love still burns,

The fire in your heart alive.

You look at me,

I see it in your eyes.

 

I am the object,

Love is the reason.

You push on every day,

Just for me.

 

Love has power,

Love is strong.

These words hold true,

Love conquers all.
