Bill's Slippers



I miss him dearly Sweet Bill of mine The love of my life A one of a kind Had his share Of quirks I adored Leaving his slippers By the front door Gone for a while But only last week Sadly put his slippers Away with a weep We all have habits Some strange some not Remembering Bill's Forever in thought Tugging at hearts strings His love's still alive The memory of sweet Bill Will forever survive Had his share Of quirks I adored Leaving his slippers By the front door © Jack Ellison 2013 Written for Bev, a friend of ours who recently lost her hubby after 42 happy years
