Moving On Is Hard To Do

It was six months ago that I lost the love of my Life.  My husband Merrill passed away quietly at home on June 26 2013. Since then, I sold our home of 35 years and moved to a one level two bedroom two bathroom home that is easy for me to care for. It is in a lovely adult community that includes a clubhouse and an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy the many activities, 

There still isn't a day that goes by without shedding a tear.  But I am blessed with four children that give me great comfort.    They have been, and still are, with me every step of the way and I know this has been hard on them as well.  All we can do is love and comfort one another.

I have been diligently trying to put one foot in front of the other.  I dipped my toes into the water and hope to start a genealogy group next month within my new community.  The word is out and it appears that there is a genuine interest among many. I am hoping that will help me resume doing something I genuinely enjoyed and help heal the hole in my heart.

What brought me here today was remembering a poem I wrote years ago.  I would like to share it with you.  It is called.

Eternal Love

Yesterday our love was young
I think of all the songs we'd song
learning of each others ways
What happened to all those lovely days?

Today our love is deeper yet
since the first day that we met.
Four children now throughout the years
along with gladness and lots of tears.

Tomorrow our love grows stronger still
and every day still brings a thrill.
Alone again with memories past
and yet new journey's do we cast.

Into eternity my love went
oh how lonely my days are spent.
Wait for me, I'll join you soon there
our greatest love in heaven we'll share.
