My husband was helping out in a church yesterday ... I sat outside and wrote this poem


I sit in solitude under the willow tree within the shadow of a broken heart I carry your casket along with me it is here that we will forever part I pray you’re looking down from high above where heaven cares for the souls of the dead I scatter your ashes in a spot that you love and leave a rose in a deep shade of red Your sudden death left a gaping hole I’ll remain alone for the rest of my days My constant grieving has taken its toll as each day passes in a melancholy haze Wishing that this wasn’t our last goodbye I raise my tear filled eyes up to the sky One In Four Poetry Contest chosen line 3. Within the shadow of a broken heart Sponsored by Joseph May 8/9/19

I know one day this will be me Jan, so your poem felt very emotional. Today is my husband's 75th birthday and I am so grateful he is still with me. This is a lovely moving poem Jan. I think it will rate high in the contest! : ) xxoo
