Status: Finished  |  Genre: Memoir  |  House: Booksie Classic

I wrote this for my sister-in-law Linda after the death of her husband John, my life long friend. He died in May 2007 of leukaemia. I just hope it brings some form of comfort in difficult times.

I caress your face and eyes of blue
Immerse myself in thoughts of you
I thank the lord the day we met
The moment we spoke hard to forget
Those sparkling eyes and smile so sweet
Life’s great gift makes me so replete
Dancing across the floor at night
In fond embrace, just hold me tight
Walking hand in hand through crowded street
Floating on air, ground not touching feet
That lingering look or knowing glance
No need for words, mind in a trance
And now the day has finally come
You leave me now, life does succumb
The memories you’ve left I will not replace
My arms still hold you tight in fond embrace
As I close my eyes I see your smile
I’m sure you won’t mind if I linger a while
Eyes fill with tears at times it’s true
As I immerse myself in thoughts of you
