Inspirational Poem

My Dear Wife died tonight,

to see her when she was so still,

was a very sad sight.

It’s hard to imagine her not around or to hear her make a loving sound

I won’t be seeing her any more,

it’s the end of her life and a closing door.

She loved her mother above all

and when Grandma died Joanne stood tall

I and writing this rhyme because I

can’t sleep.

May thoughts are all sad and very deep.

When I saw my wife alive to-day

I knew it was time to pray.

I cried by her bed she looked so very bad,

Made me feel so sad.

I loved this lady, should of told her more often

too late now, but she will never be

forgotten.

Loving husband Harvey Sr.
