When Love Leaves, What do you do?

Friends you may have noticed I have not been blogging lately. It's because my husband, Frank had been declining and lots to do. Unfortunately, on Monday, September 6, 2010 he passed away in the early morning hours in his sleep.

I am blessed to have friends and family to help me through this time and wish each day that this is but a dream. We all know death is a certainity and I must be glad that I had 25 wonderful years with my husband and remember the love and good times we had and continue on.

Never Alone

When I looked out over the patio tonight I noticed a single star,
With fog so dense you couldn't see the moon, I new it could only be you.

I stared at you for a while hoping for a reason,
Then realized at that very moment that you weren't gone at all,
In fact you are and always will be alive in our hearts and memories,
Your love is strong Frank,
So strong in fact that it has burned a hole in the fog,
Just so that the light of you can keep us warm and protected at night.

Though night shall fade and day shall come,
I know that you will not have abandoned me,
For you are now my shadow that guides and protects my day,
I know now that I shall never walk alone again,
For you will always be there holding my hand.

One would not think to ever hurt me,
For they will see my Husband at my side,
And know that a man of great stature and power protects me.

I will sleep easy tonight,
Knowing that you are there beside me,
When I feel that extra bit of warmth and security at night,
I know it is but your arms wrapped around me.

I am Never Alone, And You Are Never Forgotten.

I am so sorry for your loss Jackie - having lost my beloved Mum in June it is such a hard thing to be facing life without those we love so much. But love never leaves you and may your happy memories sustain you. There is also a poem on my blog if you wish to read it -

Big hugs.
