In honor of my wife Julia Anne Tyler 06/15/1947 to 1/09/2023.

Julia

 

There’s a moment in time when the world stands still

When changes come marching against your will

And the one that you love exits the stage

The end of the play, the very last page

 

I sat and watched as she lay on the bed

Waiting for her to wake, but knowing instead

That Heaven had called her to come home

Not understanding it would leave me alone

 

For thirty some years she dance in my eyes

Gone in an instance not saying goodbye

Doesn’t matter, we both played our parts

Our love lasts forever in each of our hearts

 

I sit in the dark watching the moon

Whenever we leave, it’s always too soon

You promised to wait ‘til the end of time

Please do, I won’t be too far behind

I'm very sorry to hear. Julied... All I can say is I've always liked the sad song Julia by The Beatles. White album. I wish you peace.

A beautiful tribute. Puts things in perspective, doesn’t it? May you find solace in writing.

Thank you, it's the best therapy I've found because it reaches deeper than talking can go. And when you're alone, it still connects you to the ones you miss.
