It’s been years…
Yet fresh in my mind
I find the memories of you.
Surprising tears spring to my eyes
Was it that song,
Or a smile…
Or seeing our children?
I haven’t thought about you in a while,
Suddenly I miss you terribly.
Just to talk with you about our children.
Only you would understand the depth
Of my love and concern for them.
Others try, but do not know them like you and I…
Life has brought me another mate.
We share quiet evenings together
Brought together when neither thought love
Would exist for us again and it is very, very good,
Than you and I…
I miss You…
…but I’m thankful to love again.
Those who have lost a mate and are privileged to love again are grateful . However moments exist in which they find themselves looking back to that loss and experiencing renewed grief. A paradox!
