Miss You So

Today I gave you roses
I gave you thirty three,
one red rose for every year
that you shared with me.
as I placed them on your grave
my tears fell silently,
for the man I truly loved
who is now just a memory.
I know that those roses
will slowly wither away,
but a memory so precious
with me will always stay.
It will never ease the sadness
or the pain I've come to know,
for no matter how much time
goes by,
I will always miss you so.

I miss my husband so much, he passed away 4 years ago only 8 days after being diagnosed with cancer.
Now I find it so hard to go on even though I have six kids and 20 grandkids and 4 great grandkids still I feel alone. I try to do some of the social things we used to do but I am not enjoying it and just can't wait to get home, I do not miss sex much but I miss his big arms and hands around me and all over my body. He had an aura around him and his hands were so warm that when he touched my face he could soothe my worst headache and his massages fixed whatever my body needed fixed . WHEN WE MEET AGAIN MY LOVE....YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING

my granddad was told he had lung cancer lasts year and that he would have years to live but sadly passed away this year in April he was the only person that I was really close to in my family. his death was hard as I miss a lot of school and one family member made it hard for all of us. I have only just started to see that he is no longer in pain and in a better place watching me. but it still does not change the fact that I miss him :-}
