3 Years ago today, my Jim walked out the door, and my life forever changed.
I’ve Missed Your Face
I’ve Missed Your Smile
I’ve Missed Your Laugh
All this while….
But what I Miss most
Is Who We Used to be..
The we – we were
When it was You and Me.
You’re gone from this world
But you LIVE in my heart
Till we meet again
And are no longer apart.
I Love you husband
I always will
Our Love hasn’t died
It grows and LIVES still.
I walk the beach in the predawn hours. Sky in monotones of gray, not going to be much of a sunrise this morning. Airs a bit chilly, water cool on my skin as I soul stroll. There’s enough of a breeze for the sea foam to partner and dance with. Aside from the gulls and plovers, I am alone.
I stop and stand at the waters edge, watching as the sky lightens with each passing moment.
Closing my eyes, I can hear the whispers on the wind asking me “what is your story?” All the while the waves lap up and around my feet, anchoring me in that spot, as if waiting and begging for my answer…….and what is my answer on this day, three years since my Jim left this world??
My life continues to move forward,
And I’m continuing to grow.
I’m given a choice to make every single morning,
And what I choose is to get up each and every day,
Thank the Good Lord, and ask for his continued guidance.
I start my day determined to live and find
My purpose, all the while never losing sight of all
The blessings in my life.
I shouted out into the wind, that I Choose Hope.
I came back here to celebrate Jim and his memory.
And I thank God every day for the gift of loving Jim
And he loving me, and for the adventure and life we shared.
Until we meet again husband, I will continue to live my life out loud
And make you proud. This is how I Choose to Live.
[The body dies…but love…that lives on and continues to grow]
