Heartache After Losing Wife

My wife, Ann, passed away at age 63, two years before we were both ready to retire from work. All our plans and dreams for a happy retirement were destroyed in that one moment.

Forgotten Dreams

In a silent world of forgotten dreams,
Where disappointments and heartaches lie.
A world where hopes and dreams have died
And bid their last goodbye.

In a deserted land of times gone by,
Where once we used to tread.
Like autumn's leaves from summer's dreams
Lay abandoned, cold and dead.

Those winter chills of unfulfilled dreams
Linger on the ground.
The warmth and glow have left my life
Now that you're no longer around.

In a silent world of forgotten dreams,
A place we failed to breech.
I look towards the star we wished upon
But sadly failed to reach.



I became a member of FamilyFriendsForum in 2011 one year after my wife Ann passed away. I share my thoughts through poetry, it helps with the pain of grieving. God Bless. A poems but a Whisper That lingers on the Breeze. A few unspoken Words Appear like falling Leaves. A tapestry of Memories Dreams that haunt the Mind Jumbled words scrambled Thoughts Borrowed from the passing of Time. John Read.
