In a moment of complete clarity

The thoughts began entering his head

That she was the one

Meant for him.

He was told

At the very last moment of his life

This one woman

From 30 years ago

Was the answer

To every question he ever asked.

The dream

He wished would come true.

The hope

He held in his heart.

The desire

That would pull all of life together.

She was the reason

He would want to live.

Yet he dies today

Alone in a room

While she sits on her porch

Thousands of miles away

Thinking of how great

Her life turned out to be.
