    today im feeling quite low, we all have these days so decided to write a poem for hubby and would like to share it with you
    I think about you every day
    and wish that you where here
    to hold my hand when im afraid
    and brush away my tears
    I loved you from the very start
    and until the very end
    my love still reaches out to you
    my husband and my friend
    my life goes on without you
    and I miss you every day
    there are no things to plan for
    since you went away

    Hi marmalade,
    What a beautiful poem. I’ve not posted for 3 months or so. How long ago did you lose your husband? I lost my Dad at 8.47am today after about a 3 year battle with Lewy body dementia. I’m sat at his bedside writing this. He’s now at peace. Just think of the good times you had together, that’s what I’m doing. Jerry

    Wow Marmarlade, that's lovely - and a reminder that somebody's passing isn't the end of our love for them. I hope you soon do find 'things to plan for', though!

    Thx,
    I’ve not been able to cry for 2 and a half years. Just anger which has not been good for my family and marriage!
    Dad lost the ability to swallow on Thursday and declined fast. My sister and mum were abroad on holiday at that time (not back until the early hours of today). It was a miracle that Dad hung on until they got there then gave up and passed away peacefully.
    This may sound strange but it could not of been a more beautiful experience.
    It is a happy release for Dad and I’m now able to let all my emotions flood out uncontrollably. Hopefully we can now grieve properly and celebrate my Dad’s life. Jerry

    What a lovely thing to say. I have only experienced this with my cats, not with any of my humans yet. I just hope my mum and dad can fly away peacefully in the not too distant future too.

    What a lovely poem, thank you marmalade, it's summing up everything I feel for mum.
    Jerry, so sorry you are going through this today, but its good your family made it. I missed mum by just 5 mins and it still upsets me even though she was not alone. Please look after yourself in these days, they can be tough.

    It’s a lovely poem. @Jerryfishman and @marmarlade, please accept my condolences. The joy of TP is having somewhere to go, where people really understand.
