To My Wife Grandpa Murray's voice

I wandered and travelled
Nor knew where I'd gone .
Life became a problem;
T'was one long cruel song.

My problems seem to multiply;
They came from every side.
I vowed to find the answer;
by this I would abide.

I looked into nature
And tore apart my mind.
Then put them on the table
To see what I could find.

I found that I'de been greedy
and avaricious, too.
Whenever projects of mine failed
I put the blame on you.

I found that I was lonely;
I thought you didn't care.
But what I really didn't know
Was you were always there.

You tried to fill the void
That always was in my Life.
you tried to ease the sorrow
You've been a real good Wife.
 
                           Yvette & Grandpa Murray  
          From James Murray to , Janet Murray ..his beautiful wife.
" In great respect of Grandfather Murray's poem he wrote for my  Grandmother Murray "

    Makes me wonder whether hindsight makes up for lost time.

    very good perspective .. I know the 'Grandma " had 7 children and was a striking woman , she must have loved him , as did he dearly.

    Thank-you My sweet , beautiful friend . I am so happy I can share this with the World , as well finding a commonality with my Ancestors ~ it's a Honor for me in Honoring his writing , there is one more poem about California, it is hard for me to read , so if I can not put it down the way he did , it will not be put out . Love and Hugs , Yvette

    I am amazed , I had no idea until my Aunt in California gave this to my sister whom e-mailed it to me , I had no idea My Great Grandfather had kissed the real Blarney Stone , and this is epic. They are long past on now , but I am "Grandpas Voice " there is one more I will be submitting in his name ~ This Site is Amazing in all aspects . THANK-YOU poetry Soup ~
