The Man

The man who was so dear to my heart 
Was suddenly taken away.
The man who taught me love and life
And helped me in every way.

He loved me completely and kept me afloat
And was always there for me.
He showed me humor and he showed me love
And what a joy life can be.

He will hold me no more close to his heart
And wipe away my tears.
I still don’t know why he had to die
Leaving me here with my fears.

    Love the write Betty, so sorry for your pain. I think the knowing will come slowly within the journey, if we keep our hearts and minds open to what God puts before us. Blesings to you. Thank you so much for stopping by and wishing me a happy birthday : )
