    Robert, I woke up this morning And reached over for you. You weren't there, I remembered Now what will I do? As I remembered the events I started to cry I lift my eyes upward And scream to the sky Why did you take him? What did we do wrong? We were finally making it We had tried for so long As I lay there and think I remember the times we had The memories flow I'm no longer as sad. A warm feeling spreads through Like sun on my face I feel light in body Like I'm floating in space. I lay there and wonder What could the warmth be? Not something I can touch And surely not able to see I picture his hand on mine Warmth spreads to my fingers I smile and laugh some The feeling still lingers The warmth is him Letting me know Everything will be okay I am never alone On those cold winter nights When I long for his touch When I feel so desperate I haven't wanted anything so much He will be there to lift me up To show me I still have his love I still have the memories We always spoke of As our children grow and learn They accomplish new things I can feel his joy Oh, the warmth that it brings My memories are great But his touch is better When I can't feel it I just write him a letter For I know he is watching He's helping me learn How to live in the world alone And for him not yearn I have felt his touch less Over the last several days I have met someone who Is like him in many ways He will always be with me This I've come to believe But now I have found someone A new love to receive I look to the skies And raise my voice Is it okay, I ask And hear a joyful noise I feel the warmth on my skin And know that he is near Not just on the outside But from somewhere within He's telling me it's okay To move on with my life And not to let it create Any emotional strife So, now when I think The memories are clear They don't hurt anymore Because I know he is near He is in my heart In our daughter, our son We weren't separated Our souls are still one I place a letter to him On the stone with his name Telling him I'm okay That here he must remain As I walk to the car An eagle flies overhead He tips his wings as if to say I'm still alive, I am not dead. Your Wife Who will always Love you Sylvia

    So very sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. Death is an enemy: due to the deep pain and sorrow it brings, it represents the loss of future dreams, relationships and experiences that have not yet been enjoyed. In the Bible at 1 Corinthians 15:26 it tells us death will be abolished and John 5:28, 29 speaks of a resurrection of life for our loved ones, there we will see these ones again and reunite, `a better place’. I pray this hope will comfort you in your time of grief and recovery.
