About John Peter Read

I became a member of FamilyFriendsForum in 2011 one year after my wife Ann passed away.
My user name is PrinceCharles in 2015 I became a Moderator.
I find writing my thoughts and turning them into poetry 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.

So sorry to hear of your loss, Gary. At least I can look you in the eye and say I know how you're feeling. Without my soulmate life has no meaning. It's the memories that keep me going.

Losing someone you shared your whole life with is soul destroying. Everywhere you go everything you do, the memories are always there. It's now 8 years since my wife and best friend passed away, but the pain never leaves; you just learn to live with it.
