A letter to Mary.

To my Dearest Mary,

The sun is shining through the trees,

Making the leaves beautifully glow,

Like it did against your face,

Not too long ago.

The sky is the perfect color blue,

Without a single cloud to be seen,

And the grass so soft and full,

The brightest color green.

It's been awhile, I admit,

That I've allowed myself to see,

How beautiful life still is,

Even for an old man like me.

Do you remember all the things,

That I recall so clearly?

Oh those sweet memories,

That I've come to love so dearly.

Do you remember your wedding dress?

White, with lace and pearls,

And your hair perfectly entwined

In a bun of golden curls.

Do you remember the house I carried you in,

Was the one you had always wanted?

But we moved eventually,

The empty nursery left you haunted.

Do you remember the pup I brought home,

To help to dry your tears?

And how that pup had stolen your heart,

For an entire thirteen years?

Do you remember our sweet, slow dances,

In the middle of the living room?

And how, even when it rained outside,

Our hearts never filled with gloom?

Do you remember when you got sick,

And I never left your side?

And how you have never left mine,

Even after you had died?

My dearest Mary,

Do you remember?

I do.
