Forever and A Day

Sweetheart, you've gone to be with God!
Deep down, I know it's best.
Your pain and suffering's ended,
you're in a peaceful rest.

Cigarettes, destroyed your lungs
and caused your tragic end!
For months, you struggled breathing,
which was hard to comprehend.

So many cherished memories,
I have, of me and you!
But, now you're gone and I'm alone,
I don't know what to do!

It's gonna take some time to heal,
at least, that's what they say!
I know it won't be easy,
I'll just have to hope and pray.

I stare across, my lonely bed,
to where you used to lie.
I try to wish you back again,
but, all I do is cry!

So, I have your ashes in an urn,
right beside our bed!
That's where they're gonna stay, Sweetheart,
just like we always said!

Right now, my future's kinda bleak!
I realize, that's true!
To carry on without you,
will be, near impossible to do!

I keep thinking, I'll get over this!
I keep thinking, there's a way!
The only problem is, my love'
it'll be, forever and a day!

Note:  Dedicated to, Una, my loving wife
of 54 years, who passed away on

    You are still suffering a very new and tough loss. I am so sorry. It does help to write however. I started writing poetry when I lost my only son, fifteen years ago and I know it helped me to be able to speak of the pain. Time does help in he healing. Love, Joyce
