These words are so touching, and I truly believe that "Somewhere, in the other world she might see them." How sad to lose a loved one at such a young age. Keep writing. I'm sure your words comfort others.
In a clear, simple voice you give shape and texture to these feelings of being left behind when a spouse passes away. There is that poignant loneliness, that need to carry on through these sad reflections. And it is not easy. Life is never the same again. estory
Your poem is full of great images of sharing your
life with your wife, your chosen soul mate.
Your wife is witness to your writing and feels your
pain. Someday she will be your date at the table of the
Great Feast that the Lord will provide.
Thank you for sharing.
Peace and Joy,
Nice piece of poetry having smooth flow with lovely rhyming scheme, and beautifully working as a memorable tribute to the poet's beloved wife.
The 2nd stanza is particularly noteworthy.
