My Hero, My Husband

by Teresa
(Odessa, TX)

When they told me you were leaving,
I didn't believe.
Even as you slipped away,
I didn't believe.
  Day after day in denial I'd stay.
This cannot happen!
Our life cannot end!
In vain I so fought it, in vain I would pray.
  My Hero, my Husband, don't leave me today.
My Darling, My Dearest, no words can explain,
No man can replace you, no way to ease this pain.
  My love, my protector, provider, life mate.
Gone, gone, just gone...

To My Husband: SOMETIMES I PRETEND

by Stacy Knasel
(sidney Ohio USA)

I get so sad, now that you've died,
Sometimes I pretend its all just a lie.
You saved my life in so many ways,
I tried to save yours day after day.
When God came to get you,and take
you home,
I tried to hold on, I tried not to let you go.
Why would God take you from me?
When your all that I had,
My life fills so empty without
you here,
I feel so alone,
I know I'm not whole,
The worlds not right without you here,
I try to remember how blessed I was,
To have been able to look at your smiling face,
To have felt your arms in a loving embrace.
I still feel cheated
And feel it's unfair,that your not here.
Only God knows his plan,
And I do thank him for the time we had,
I'm still so sad, now that you've died,
Sometimes I will still pretend it's all
just a lie.

Perfect Love

by Jay Wyatt

Perfect Love



The love of my life, my companion, my wife

Has gone home to heaven, she took that great flight.



God blessed me with her, when we were both young

So full of life, alive and high-strung.



We saw much sunshine; we went through much rain

Good times and bad times, laughter and pain.



Sometimes we laughed, and sometimes we cried

But what ever we went through, she stayed by my side.



She always loved me, no doubt in my mind

Caring, compassionate, forgiving and kind.



Her last years were painful, her last days were rough

And though she was suffering, she stayed faithful and tough.



She couldn’t eat, and she couldn’t walk

And in her last hours, she couldn’t even talk.



But now she is feasting and singing glad songs

And on streets of gold, she is running along.



Safe in the presence, of her Savior and Lord

Her battle is over, her body’s restored.



Good people pass on, often before their time

But those who follow godly paths, rest in peace when they die.



I’m sad and I’ll miss her, I’m grieved and I’m hurt

Because she’s up in Heaven and I’m still on earth.



But I’ll see her again; I’ll be with her someday

Because Jesus my Savior has provided the way.



I loved her, the only way I knew how

My love wasn’t perfect, but she’s loved perfect now.





In loving memory of my precious wife Mary Etta Wyatt

Time

by Kimberly P
(Cincinnati, OH)

Time is of the essence, they say
   it flees and fades away
We don't have enough time today
   let's rush it before the night
Hoping to get our way, we pray
   to make it thru just right
We really don't understand times plan
   it's truly the giving type
Looking at time in another light
   really should be the demand

Each day and night it moves us

Giving us maturity, strength and courage
   to deal with life's abuses
Stress, ills and pain befall us all
   death stops our time out right
Still winter, spring, summer and fall all pass
   healing our hearts in spite
In time relief will come our way
   It's promised! It's true!
As time keeps pushing us progressively forward
   until we are renewed

Last year, my 46 yr old husband died after a short illness. His prognosis was good, so his death was unexpected. We have no children, but I have a large family. Everyone,I know, who had already experienced the death of their spouse, always said to me "In time..." or "it will take time to...". It's true that time is helping me to cope. I will always love and miss him.

To my husband Jim

by J.R.W.
(California)

You are remembered

You are remembered

Missing You

It's been just short a year now
Since your kiss that said goodbye

You joked about the weather
With a twinkle in your eye

You left assured you would return
But hugged me anyway

Our days had been triumphant
With excitement in the air

You beat that dreadful cancer
A fight that took its toll

Then inspiration form a promise
Proved to reach its goal

Our hearts were light
And filled with love

You left our morning coffee
With happiness in your heart

To us you were an Angel
Who loved with all your might

Thank God for Angel wings
For HE has called you home

Gently lifted on those wings
He took you to the light



After winning a battle with cancer, my husband was getting stronger and went for a motorcycle ride with friends on a cold January morning of 2010. The ride changed the lives of all his friends and family...by taking his.
