Six months after all
Shouldn’t I feel better?
They say time will heal
But, they don’t know … how much I loved her.

Too soon she left my side
I can’t find my way alone
This house is just too quiet
And, she’s not ever coming home.

Coffee on the patio
Not fun without her there
None of this feels right
It simply isn’t fair.

The hours slowly pass
Too long, can’t find a way
To fill the emptiness
To make it through the day.

The garden in the yard
Now overgrown with weeds
Her loving, tender touch
Something we both seem to need.

I finish a new book
Want to share the quirky ending
Only she would understand
What she’d predict, at the beginning.

Clever and oh so charming
Beautiful, sublime
Can’t imagine I’ll feel better
They say I will, it just takes time.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I went over to a new friend’s place, yesterday. Her house was immaculate…pristine and so tastefully, decorated. Her patio was lovely…white walls, white furniture! A book…. sitting beside a comfortable chair. She lives alone and has been alone, for many years. She is a gentle soul, soft spoken and quiet. I was inspired to write this poem, after leaving her home. Her husband had predeceased her. 💙
