Poetry doesn't get more beautiful than that. Thank you so much for including the poem's history beneath the poem. It made the piece more real. I'm sure Carol and Ron read and reviewed it and I bet they both awarded six stars

    I'm sure they are laughing at me, they always said I was a sentlementlist, :) but I know they will understand how much I'm missing them. They were such a lovely couple. Thank you, Bob for your very kind comments. I do so appreciate them. :)) Sandra xxx

Thank you for sharing your tribute to your friends with us in these rhymed quatrains, accented by his ethereal picture. I admired your speaking in the voice of the husband of nearly 60 years and your "crumpled scrap of paper" simile. Yes, you conveyed how much you miss this special couple. Sighs- Joan

    Thank you for reading my poem, Joan, and the nice comments, too. I have so many memories of them that it doesn't take much to bring them back with a smile. I wish they were still with us, though. Big hugs, my friend. Sandra xx

Awww, hell, Sandra, you've got me crying here... This is just beautiful, my lady in more ways than your lovely rhythm and flow! Your gentle descriptions draw the reader in until they can actually feel that attachment which you lament here... wow. Just awesome... Thank you for sharing such wonderful people that you hold/held in your heart! ;) Yvette

"For Ron from Carol 2017", is an exceptionally well-written and heart-wrenching piece. It was a privilege to both read and review this talented poet's work. To me, this is a six, but I've only got fives left. I look forward to seeing your next post.

    Thank you so much, Duchess, just knowing they are together helps enormously. It seems to be a time of grief everywhere, my friend. What is going on? Big hugs, Sandra xxx

It's hard to stay sad for too long when such loving souls have now been reunited. This is a poignant tribute to your friends. I didn't find any nits in your work.

    Thank you, Judy. No, we couldn't stay sad now they are together, I think we are sad more for us not being able to see them again. Isn't that the way when we lose anyone to death, we grieve more for our own loss. Big hugs, my friend. :)) Sandra xx

Good morning Sandra, Did you really have to make me cry first thing in the morning? ;) I loved this poem, so heartfelt and just beautiful. I haven't got any 6's left. That makes me sad too. This surely deserves one. Have a tear-free day! LOL

    Sorry, Susan! Aww, thank you for those lovely words, my friend. I'm glad you 'sort of' enjoyed this poem. Lol. What with my friends, and now Phyllis, it's not a day for smiling, is it? Stay well, my friend. :) Sandra xxx

What a great poem, so rich with feeling! I think your friends would be very impressed with this. My husband and I also married 60 years understand Ron and Carol's feelings so well. Thanks for sharing this beautifully worded and presented poem. Blessings to you for creating this in memory of them. Carol S

Sandra,
This is a well written love poem from both sides of a family equation
It shows the love a mourning wife for a husband after a long and happy marriage. As well as the love of a family after the other half dies.
It also shows faith
Keep writing
Joan

What a beautiful poem, containing so much love and compassion. As we get older, the loss of friends and family happens more often, so finding goodness inside the sadness is a rare gift. I've just read your post about Phyllis, and I know you'll be heartbroken to know she will soon pass. You were a great friend to her, and she will be sorely missed. Stay strong my wonderful friend xxx

    Thank you, Alexis. I don't think today is going to be a good one. Just bit my tongue! (Really!) When I saw the message from Katy, I knew before I opened it what it was going to say. I'd already had it in the back of my mind something was wrong.

    Thanks for another lovely 6 stars, my friend. Ron and Carol were our best friends in Spain. Talk to you later on Skype if you're in. xxxx Sandra

There is much sadness in this tribute Sandra and it is unusual for a married couple to die of the same thing like this and I wonder where the two of them have been living. Your words are endearing and kind, I am so sorry for your loss, love Dolly x

    Thank you so much for this lovely review of my poem, Dolly. They were Londoners. Carol, an ex-traffic warden, and Ron an ex-policeman. They told some fabulous stories, too. I miss them loads. Sandra xx
