wife s sentimental journey

to all the women who think love is gone



For fifty years they were together as husband and wife 
And like all married couples they would bicker and fight. 
Then the day came that GOD called her away 
And with him she could not stay. 
He mourned the loss of his soul mate, and to be with her again 
He did not want to wait. 
As he went through her belongings of fifty years 
He found a box which brought a tear. 
It was a 12” box with the words engraved “treasure chest box” 
With a key for the lock. 
It was something he had never known before 
As he opened up the door. 
It was a stack of letters tied with a red ribbon 
And a note on top which read: 
My dear husband – if you are reading this it is because 
GOD decided to take me away, and with you I could not stay. 
But these letters is what kept me alive, and of your love I did thrive. 
Each letter tells me of the love that you have for me 
And thru my teary eyes I did see. 
A man of compassion and kindness and love 
Given to me from GOD above. 
For each letter that you had written me, I wrote a response 
Although I never gave them to you “till now “. 
I knew that you would find it hard to let me go 
This is something I did know. 
So read my responses to the love you had for me 
As you have set my heart free. 
Every letter was dated from the first one written on the bottom 
To the last one on the top 
He held his breath and his heart stopped. 
He read all the love letters he had written and her responses 
To every one which she ended with “from the start you stole my heart”. 
After reading all her letters he went back to her note and continued to read. 
It said: life is full of mysteries, twists and turns we do not see 
Life can never be a road straight and narrow with the ending in sight. 
So each day I prayed with all of my might, that a love as the one that you 
Have for me – will live with me eternally. 
For if there is any such thing as “human eternal love” 
You have gone far above! 
You have been my ROCK OF GIBRALTER 
And I knew you would never falter. 
Now I need you to be strong, because this is where you belong. 
Show everyone the love that you have given 
For you make life worth living. 
“FROM THE START YOU STOLE MY HEART”
