St.George’s Day 2017.
T’was the end of a wonderful love
that lasted for many years,
years of laughter and happiness,
years of constant love and some tears.
Memories are all I have left now,
Happiness is hard to find,
every hour of each long lasting day
you are always on my mind.
On the day that you departed,
I was holding your hand ‘
I heard you say I love you
I knew this was the end.
But like you I am firmly convinced
that it is only an end of earthly life,
and that one day we shall meet again
to live throughout eternity
My dearest darling wife.

THat is a wonderful thing to believe, pommer, and i wish you both the best of adventures in the hereafter. It’s so sad reading stuff like this especially the final “i love you’. Though i got to say that that was a real blessing you heard her speak and she that knew you were with her right till the end.. I’m sure there must be lots of happy/fun memories of your exploits together emblazoned in your head that hopefully one day you will be able to write about.. all the best albert
Thank you so much for your most thoughtful comment Albert.Yes,it was wonderful to be there at the last moment of my wife’s life. what was so wonderful was the fact that she had been unconscious for two days and only opened her eyes and said those three little words,confirming a long story of her love. Yes, I have many wonderful memories,of the seventy years we were together,and I reflect on those daily. It is wonderful to have them. I am also pleased that she knew I was there when it mattered most to have support. Once more Albert, Thank you.… Read more »
