Poem: One Last Time

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

One Last Time

He loves her
more than anyone in his life,
he reaches out
hoping to grasp one last hug.

When he holds her tightly
her tears begin to fall,
her heart shatters
into tiny, broken pieces.

Crying uncontrollably,
not able to form a word,
she listens to his heartbeat
touching hers
for one last time.


Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

— Dr. Seuss
