For You

I
Awake,
Silent tears
Stream down my face:
Missing you, wanting
To tell you I love you.
Outside forces prevent me
From doing what’s right and proper,
That final respect, to say goodbye.
You are in a better loving place,
Pain and sorrow have been banished,
You are born anew and free,
We who are left live on,
Fighting our demons.
I will miss you
Forever,
Always.
Now.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    A poignant poem; all part of the grieving process. Some days will be worse than others, even decades on!
