Live Our Dreams


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011 with permission of the Author.

Staring at the little dots in the sky
Wondering which one is you
Asking the same question, why?
Only answer I know is that you knew.
Sitting by the window, watching the rain fall
Never felt so cold.
Remembered the last story you told.

Hold on and be strong
Live you're life, do your things
For it's in heaven I belong
Go on and live your dreams

In a song I still hear you
In a flower I still see you
But your bed space is empty
It's just your memory that comforts me.
Missing you is a rollercoaster ride
Emotions up and down
Always wishing you are by my side

But I'll hold on and I'll be strong
Will live my life, do my things
And promise to live our dreams.

I lost my husband six weeks ago. We were married for over 52 years. If only my love could have saved him. I never even got to say goodbye. He died as I slept. I never should have fallen asleep. God help me, I am so sorry. I may have been able to save him. I will never forgive myself. I miss him so, so much. All I can do is cry. I want him back so much. I don't know how to go on.

I lost my husband of 50 years and 11 months on December 29, 2015, to a very aggressive cancer. It only took 26 days from him feeling bad to God taking him. I met him at a gas station in 1964. I was starting my senior year in high school. We were married 7 months later on January 30, 1965. We had 2 beautiful children and spent our lives together. He was my best friend, pal, lover, companion, critic, and champion. I was better because of him. I still cry. I can't think of him without feeling like my life has been torn in half. I reach for him; he isn't here. I try to share a laugh; he isn't here. God has taken this beautiful person. I know I will be with him some day. I pray daily that he waits for me so we can continue to be together. He was my soul mate.

I identify with your grief. My darling died 8 months ago of the same thing. He was a beautiful man and so fit. I thought he would outlive me. Sadly, we had no children, so we became everything to one another. I function, and people say I'm strong, but I feel hollow inside. I wish I could say something that might help, but all I can do is tell you that you are not alone in your agony. Our late Queen Mother said "Grief is the price we pay for having loved and been loved." My love and prayers, Linda.

I lost my husband of 47 years. I still can't get over it and think of him constantly. Will the pain ever go?

I lost my husband quite suddenly December 10, 2014. We would have celebrated our 50th Anniversary Sept 11, 2015. We met when I started high school. He became my best friend, my buddy, my soul mate and the love of my life, an awesome dad to our son and daughter, and a friend and mentor to many. He is so sadly missed by all whose lives he touched. Every day brings new memories to mind. He will live in my heart forever. Those thoughts keep me going but the sense of loss will remain with me forever. Until we meet again, I love you!

Today is my 47th wedding anniversary. Sadly, I must reminisce alone. My beloved husband died in June, 2014. We had such plans for our Golden Years, and spent too many years planning and saving for our future together. It was a future that was not to be. Cancer robbed us of all of our plans. I must carry on alone and yearn for that precious day when I will join him on the other side.

My husband passed away June 13 2014. Next month Feb 17 would have been our 50th wedding anniversary, so I'll be reflecting on that day alone. That day is also my birthday, got married on my 21st birthday. We had a lot of plans for that day, but Cancer robbed us of that celebration. The pain of not having him here with me is so horrible, it's hard for me to understand how many of us wives are able to go on, but somehow by the grace of God, we are able to, we certainly are strong women, thank you God. Having faith in the Almighty God is so very helpful, I could not have survived without FAITH IN GOD. I will carry on, but my husband will always have a special place in my heart, I love that man with every fiber in my body, he was an amazing human being. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MY LOVE, I know you are with me in spirit !!!
