By Charles Robert Lindholm

He had it all,
the world was his
and his alone,
that was the problem

He had a yearning
to be part of a pairing
instead of a solo
and his wish was granted

He lost a rib
but didn’t mind at all
He gained
a soulmate

His love for Her
was unconditional
He would do anything
for Her,

And then one day
He knew
that She would

He knew
the truth
He knew
the reason
He knew
the price
He’d have to pay
and chose
to pay it

He could not
of a day without her
He made a choice
to be Her soulmate
for their forever
until death
parted them

He could not
live without Her
and He made
the choice
not to
