Our Last Goodbyes
Husband-Best Friend-Ride or Die
The love we had stays on my mind, I kept asking why? This can't be the time. You loved me, showed me in many ways since you've been gone, how many days? You left me without warning, I don't believe it's hard to process, I'm confused, Grieve?
My sixty years is supposed to be happy, not sad. Here I sit, crying and hurting, this is all bad. The loneliness has crept in, what do you recommend? Talk it out, cry it out, dance it out, grin? You used to say I'm strong, you were so wrong. I am and feel so weak now that you are gone. Today I will celebrate for you, your life. The love you said you needed from your wife. Take up your wings and fly high in the sky.
Love always, Joy
The Last One Now Standing
