empty tissue box - itty bitty

death took her from me
my adoring wife
I try not to cry
   there's no one to refill
   my empty tissue box

    You write SO SAD SUSAN, this makes me want to fill my cabinets with lots of tissues. Don't want the widower looking for someone to refill the empty boxes. You know sometimes tears are not a life time. xox~ PD
