Happy Birthday Joyce.

She was born on this day,

That wonderful woman

Who became my wife.

So many wonderful times together,

Our love for each other always shining

As we went through our lives in happiness,

Total happiness.

Those times came to a close

When she passed on that sad day,

But she will always be there in my heart

And will be waiting for me.

So until that day arrives

With this rose for you and your love,

Your love for me,

And my love for you

I say Happy Birthday Joyce,

I will be with you when time flows

And we go together into eternity.

    A poignant write Gold.
    Loneliness, bereavement, etc can cause some sort of emotional 'claustrophobia', if you know what I mean?
    There is a finality in bereavement, yet if I say it, the Christian faith gives hope. I don't mean 'messing about' with lots of ritual, nor hypocritical things done in the name of 'religion'.

          A poem clearly heartfelt and full of genuine love. Some people never find such a love at all. I believe death is not the end, and we shall meet again somewhere down the line. A beautiful poem, Andy!
