United/Divided

vintage_couple_72_quaddles_by_quaddles-d3c1udx

Today’s poem is a united/divided poem.

I chose to write about a story I found about a couple who fell in love young. VERY young: at age eight. ^_^

Jeanette & Alexander
Jeanette and Alexander
Eight when they first met
Fell in love, no sweat
in 1927

Jeanette and Alexander
Grew up together
Loved one another
for 75 years.

Jeanette and Alexander
Whose love was so complete
For each others’ hearts they beat
for 75 years.

Jeanette and Alexander
When Alexander died
Jeanette was by his side
She died that very day.

Jeanette and Alexander
Apart for just a day
Buried, so they say,
Together now forever.
