Today marks the five year anniversary that you passed away. I can hardly believe that I have managed without you. You remain so close in my thoughs and even closer in my heart. I carry the love we shared within me. And know that someday we will meet again. You are dearly loved and sorely missed by your children and grandchildren. We keep you alive in our hearts.......as we remember you and your sense of humor, your love of life and family. Your silly made-up songs and crazy ramblings bring smiles to our faces and chuckles from within as we recall them. To say your name is pure love. And tomorrow is another day.
To My Beloved by Celia Wenig
You had a talent for bringing special meaning to life,
It was such a pleasure to be your wife,
You helped me to grow and to realize
The fullness and the beauty in our lives.
Every day I counted my blessings.
Then God called, and you went away
Out of this world to a brighter day.
Suddenly my life of gladness
Turned to utter sadness.
My grief wears me down, I shed so many tears,
As I recall your love and devotion through the years.
For your sake and in memory of your name,
I pray for strength to do things the same.
To reach out, to fill the hours with useful ways,
To comfort, to cheer and have no more empty days.
I try to console myself -- it was God's greater plan,
So I must accept it, if I can.
You moved away to His splendid home above,
If there is life after death,
I know you will be waiting there for me, With love.
Though Heaven and Earth divide us,
and the distance is so great,
I count my blessings for the years you were my mate.
I will live my life remembering, while you wait, slumbering.
My beloved, may you rest in peace.
