A PROMISE OF THE HEART

Once a school girl crush.

Now a great love story.

A vow made long ago.

In a white power suit.

To love and protect.

In sickness and in health.

Unconditional.

On road trips.

Casino runs.

At football games.

“Bingo!”

Fishing on the pier.

In waiting areas.

Stage IV pancreatic cancer.

Chemo.

Loss of appetite.

Hospital rooms.

Hospice.

A promise of the heart.

Between whispers and stolen kisses.

Till death do they part.
