Gone Way Too Soon

Source

I heard a rumble from the hillsides.

I saw a cloud turning gray.

And in my time of sorrow,

I saw you drift away.

I hear laughter from the angels.

I think of choirs in the sky.

As memories come easy,

I try hard not to cry.

I did all I knew to keep you here.

I could not make you stay.

You did what you wanted,

You always got your way.

This is my husband, Bill and his faithful companion, Whimpy.

I hold the truth within my heart.

But I never understood,

Knowing you liked doing things,

Unhealthy cause you could.

My granddaughter, Katelyn made this nice pot in her pottery class at school. I bought the bronze memorial plate on line to glue on it.

I'm sorry for your loss. I know how it feels to lose someone so very close to you. This was beautiful and reminded me to remember our loved ones in a time of love, light, and happiness. Thank you. Best of wishes.

This is a beautiful poem, Diana. I could tell you love your husband very much. You're right, people make their own choices, and we have to accept that. And hope that we will meet them again :)

Thank you, kalinin1158. Sometimes accepting what we don't understand is the only way to make peace with ourselves.

I lost my husband about 8 years ago - massive heart attack. He chewed tobacco, drank alcohol, and was very overweight. These were his choices, not mine. I think you "get" that, too. Glad to see you thriving on this website.

Yes, Carolyn I can relate all to well. There wasn't anyway we could have stopped them from self indulging. Sometimes I think "What if I..." I try not to venture there often and I'm getting better at leaving it be. Thanks for stopping by.
