Why July

My birthday is in month of.........July!
Our wedding date falls in...........July!
Then is it any wonder I ask........why
Why did I lose you in ...............July?

We buried you on my...... .........birthday.
I always get the birthday ..........blues.
I do not need this sad ..............remind
Of the cruel July day you

I've had fifty-three long years....of
Loneliness and longing for
Suddenly taken away and.......  .lost

    July brings you a mixture of coincidences, Joyce....some happy and another that left you alone with your sad thoughts. With God's help you learnt to live not only with July, but also with many years that followed. Blessings and take care. // paul

    With you all the way with this one. My Jennifer died on 9th March this year, her birthday 14th March, we met on 2nd March, diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and told she was going to die on her birthday. We were married on 31st March and her funeral was 12th March. You can guess which is my least favourite month. I will be raising a glass in homage to your lost love. Kind regards, Ian
