What a very meaningful post. I ache for you but am happy you had so many good years together. Do not go gentle into that good night. you will, eventually, but for now, keep the good memories close and forge new ones with new acquaintances, friends and family. It will be different, but another way to squeeze goodness out of life. Life is finite, so it makes sense to make the most of it for however long we have it.
All the best to you and I am sure your lovely wife would wish you to be as happy as you can possibly be, even if it is without her.
Warmest wishes,
Hayley:)

You will be with her again in time! She is watching you from the heavens and is with you when you sing. My heart breaks for your loss and thank you for sharing.

I am so sorry for your loss. I think going gently into that goodnight is true cowardice, no matter the circumstances. Fighting it and choosing life is the true courage.

All the best to you.

The poet tells of his lost beloved. I like how he includes songs and other poets poems in the poem. As a reader, this poem came to me more like a story. I give a five [what I would give four stars] because this appears more a mix of poetry and story style of writing - new to me yet very helpful in consoling under the circumstances.

thank you for admitting your overwhelming grief and lonliness. Life doesn't always let us have our loved ones forever and when they are gone we truly miss them not just emotionally but physically. Their touch, Their love, their understanding of us. You were loved if that is any comfort at all. I so wish you comfort and peace.

Death awaits us all
How we greet it
speaks highly of our character
and moral fortitude

Some place in my travels through our travels in life, I came across this saying, "Death is Natures way of asking us to slow down." This is very well written. My condolences about your lost.

The problem with facing the veil between worlds, not quite knowing, is we must face it alone, I'm younger than you, but not so far behind that I don't understand, I've lost several friends in recent times, my brother one, and two very close friends, and last night a friend of 34 years has been given a year to live, I'm posting shortly a tribute and my thoughts on "fading light", they all handled it well, including my friend, life can be a lonely journey, having no faith would be hard, well done, I'm so sorry for your loss, if you like I'll pray for you. Your wife was brave, well done, blessings, Roy

I see no point in raging, as death is going to come to us all anyway. I am SO VERY sorry for your loss. I don't understand the point of God, in letting good people die horrible deaths. I too, am very confused on this. I hope you don't go for a long, long time....but if possible....go gently. Blessings...

I am sorry for your loss which will lay heavy on your heart, but your wife lived long and had a good life and this should be a celebration of her life. I lost my husband aged 64 and when I talk about him with my family we remember the good times. This is what you must do now, remember her with fondness and the good times you shared, my thoughts are with you, love Dolly x
