A Tribute to My Beloved ( on his death anniversary )
by sonia s.sicat
Jack, my husband and me
I've lived with him for most of my life
Forty two and a half happy, golden years,
Forever etched in my grateful heart
I've learned to love him even more..
Even after death has taken us apart.
He is with me in every journey that I make
With me in every step that I take
He's in everything that I do..
In the very air I breathe.
He's in every beat of my heart
Even if it aches and falling apart,
He fills the depth and breadth of my soul..
Until it can hold no more.
Why did he have to go
And leave me alone and confounded,
Why did God have to choose him..
To make him my beloved?
Did he not know that in this world
I've learned to love him
More than anything else,
Didn't I tell him countless times..
When we are locked in each other's embrace?
Of all the men in my life
I had chosen him as my husband
Did he know the reason why..
I'm sure he must, all this time.
This gem of a man whose quiet masculinity
Whose sense of propriety,
Whose strong spirit of what is right
And what is wrong..
Make him stand tall amongst the throng.
This man I love is hard to find
His gentle loving, giving and caring,
Truly make my husband ..
One of a kind.
I shall forever live my years
With a pocket of grief in my heart,
He shall forever leave in my being
An empty corner of my soul,
I will love him forever.. my all.
(Dedicated to my beloved husband from
his wife, Sonia)
