Eternity With You

Eternity With You It seems like an eternity that you have been gone, But every day; you're still on my mind, like a song Sidling through this loving heart of mine It never fails, every single day, every single time. But I don't mind that you do, You'd always bring a smile with you So, pull up a chair, Hunny let's reminisce You can stay with me for a while, I insist. Remember when the kids were small, We would go to the "Meadows of Our Love." Where the kids would rumble and tumble around We would talk for hours, holding hands being strong. I'll never forget; those days done passed, You brightened my days; you made me laugh How could I forget; the time that we shared When you were here, inside our love that we beard. I am burning the "Lilac" candle for you, In appreciation for; "remembering, my boo." Now that you're gone, I have accepted your leave; I'll be waiting in the "Meadows," our Season's to breathe. R.I.P. Shannon, I love you; you complete me!

Beautifully said too, Jo! Thank you, I couldn't have said it any better. I thank you for visiting and commenting on my poetry here. I've been missing in action again, haha. Nah, running around, but I have been trying to draw pictures of poetry which isn't the easiest of tasks. Thanks again, and have a wonderful day! Best of Wishes, William

Leon, hello, my friend! Thank you indeed for your beautiful words spoken. She was my everything and still is. Every Sunday, I sit in spirit with her and our Lord, Jesus! I don't think there is a day that goes by the I haven't supposed of my late wife. No other woman could replace her and how she showed me the essence of bliss. Best of Wishes, William

Well, thank you so very much, Hilo, for such a beautiful comment. I value that and your visits. She was a remarkable woman. She brought bliss, true bliss, to me, showed me just what the essences of life indeed were. So inspiring to me she was, she'd step into the room, and the aura of her omitted, and her radiance she had, ahh! Best of Wishes, William
