Beloved, I miss you.

I know you’re everywhere.

But it’s out there…

in vast oceans lapping your shores

in soaring mountains laden with your sharp breath

in dry deserts teaming with your wordless life

in secret coves and hidden lakes where your beauty abounds

in rain forests enveloping your musky sweat

in seaside cliffs where your seals and whales play below

in forests of tall trees where your bears chase me

in silent sunsets that slowly explode of your essence

in quiet stars and solitary moon that sing of you

…where I feel you the most.

    My husband was a soldier … a hero, a mountain climber, a weightlifter, he made furniture, stained-glass lovely things, he helped me raise my children, he was a grandfather, he was an amazing and beautiful man. He died of cancer September 21st, 2018. .. he left a huge hole in our hearts,

    thank you for your lovely poem
