Missing You

Still I hear those voices
From a time so long ago.

And walk with you once again.

Just to look into your eyes
And tell you about my day.
It's those little things I miss
Since the day you went away.

I now pray to God in heaven
To keep you in his care,
To comfort you and heal this hurt
Until the day I meet you there.

A beautiful poem

I have just lost my Wife Teresa on Sep 5th after 56 years of marriage I feel empty and lost and hurting inside. I miss her so much she was the love of my life.
Reading some beautiful poems should help me.
I hope to put some of my wife's poems on this website in the future as she has wrote poetry herself in the past.
God bless we must all keep strong.

Hi, Haz. I'm so sorry for your loss. I feel the same way as you do. All one can do is remember the good times; it's the memories that keep me strong. I still feel her presence, for love never dies.

A beautiful tribute poem to your late wife Ann, brother John...

Then years is a very long time to journey all alone
When the love of your life's at rest in God's heavenly home
Familiar things bring memories of all you used to share
May they keep you going until you meet again up there.

God bless you sister Beryl for your wonderful comment, your verse says it all .
