Tears on a Keyboard

by Karl Wild GG23

As she reads the words he wrote,
Her teardrops fall like rain,
A lump forms in her throat,
Her world is filled with pain.

She tries to read them clearly,
But her eyes begin to swell,
He says he loves her dearly,
It's just time to say farewell.

He knows exactly what's in her heart,
That her love for him is surely true,
He doesn't want for them to part,
But feels there's nothing he can do.

"Forever and always you'll be my baby,
I'll never let another girl take that away,
In another life this would work out, maybe,
I'll think of that precious smile, everyday."

As her teardrops hit the keyboard,
She's not prepared to let him go,
His love for her, was it's own reward,
Signed always and forever, X and O.

This is one of the better poems I've ever read. I think the rhyming is phenominal and the rhythm was great. This one hits home.
