Only Human

Close by the door, he paused to stand
As he took the class ring from her hand
All who were there just could not speak
As a single tear rolled down his cheek.

Memories of the moments when they had fun
As they laughed together in the driving sun
Remember he thought he had to be free
But how he hurt her, he just couldn’t see.

Now her eyes are very cold
He would never again have her hand to hold
He whispered “I love you” as he bent so near
The words so soft that no one could hear

On his finger he placed the ring as he kissed her goodbye
Remember how she wore it, he began to cry
The door opened and the cold air began to blow
As they carried her casket into the snow
