You are still in my heart
"I Still Remember" by jaybird1
Flow on with me, O! gentle stream,
for it was here we found our dream.
A dream that lingered many years,
with happiness, beset with tears.

You gave compassion, children, care
and all the good times we would share;
Always together, side by side,
you were my one eternal bride.

Now, you are gone and I must stay,
to look and seek a better day.
Never again to have you near,
I pledge my love, forever dear.

I yearn again for yesterday-
For love so sweet and life so gay.



Author Notes
My wife, a rare jewel, died in 1982 at 52 years of age
and I still hurt.I feel, from time to time that I should
write another poem of tribute and remembrance.
Somewhere, in the other world she might see them.
jaybird-Thank the many for your comforting comments.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
