My Final Wish Before I Go

What I’m feeling is difficult to put into words
It really is very hard to share the pain 
I feel in my sad and heavy heart.
I never dreamed when we married that
when it said “until death do us part”
We’d be divided so soon as husband and wife.
I always thought that there was no doubt
that we would grow old together in life.
There is a saying that says "nothing lasts forever".
It seems this includes marriage as well
Especially when you're hit with  an obstacle in life
that knocks you when you're not looking on your face.
I couldn't  see this coming it took me quite by surprise
I'd contracted something the Doctors couldn't mend
Soon I'd be leaving the man I loved more than life itself
My husband and soul mate, more importantly my friend.
My final wish for you is to find true peace in your heart
When I'm gone remember our happy times together
Let your heart be open for any new love that comes along
If it does grab it with both hands; don't let it slip away
I want you to find a new love with whom to spend your life
Then, if it's meant to be you'll know and have my blessing also
Very soon I hope and pray that you could be asking her some day
Would she do you the honor of of becoming your loving wife.

    Pam, many things in life are sad, and knowing that nothing is forever, is the top on my list. This is very sad, and I hope you don't have to part... Life is not fair. Pam, you will be in my thoughts. hope to hear from you. I hope you will have a nice mothers day tomorrow. xox~ Linda

    This is another sad one. Gosh, I'm sorry to hear of all these trials that you are writing about. But it's got to be cathartic. Thanks for your comments and on Lavender roses, it was mostly exaggeration. I"m still a few years away from my 40th and I sure don't ever expect roses, especially strewn on the floor!

    Who knows they might be wrong. I might live longer than the usual time. Statistics show that some have done better. It's to late for a cure for me, but I pray they find one to help any future suffers stop it before it begins. I pray for them all the time for a cure. Pam

    I realise it is sad but it was also too one of the hardest poems I haver written, I am hoping with all my heart that I have a lot more time left. However,the prognosis isn't good but I won't give into it. It was my theraoist's suggestion to write down my thoughts in poetry regarding this. You are right though, it does feel cathartic, letting go of those built up emotons, I will do a happier one just for you. Love Pamx

    My Dearest Pam, I am still reeling from this Heart Devastating POEM. I also feel guilty for my Comment on YOUR previous POEM "A Symbol of Our LOVE" I am an Old Man and I don't know if I sent YOU a Soup Mail as I said I would. Did I?? I would Appreciate it if YOU would read my series POEM "The Heart of a POET Speaks" Parts 1-4 on page 10 and 9. It is late and the week-end I will continue Comments tomorrow,and send a Soup Mail if I have not.I LOVE YOU and YOURS ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR LIEGE-Harry

    Dear Pam, NO NO NO Please tell me this is a "What If" POEM, or the deep Imagination of YOUR mind, or the Quill of another POETESSS. If YOUR Spouse LOVES YOU as much as (By YOUR POETRY) YOU LOVE her oh my my eyes are flowing rivers down my cheeks. I have to stop right now and compose myself. I know YOU do not know me but I am sending a SOUP Mail to YOU. Give me ten minutes.With all the LOVE left in a Broken Heart, ALWAYS AND FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry

    Oh Harry, I am so truly sorry Harry. I sincerely wish I could say that this is a 'WHAT IF: POEM Harry, but it wouldn't be fair on you and the other poets. It wasn't easy writing this poem, probably hardest thing I have written.The truth is I have very rare disease called "Multiple Systems Atrophy". There is no cure, but I pray they will find one soon. Take Care dear friendl Glod Bless...Pamxx
