Dark Eyes

by Zoe

Dark Eyes Look Back At me
no Soul full of pain
Dark Eyes speak silently
Dark Eyes scream your name
was it a year ago
or yesterday
my life moved a different way
sunshine shown down on me
flowers bloomed
our love was here
our future grew
you asked me to share you life
you asked me to take your name
you asked me to be your wife
We chose our house
our place to be
we planned for our family
we talked of old age
together be
happiness was my key
with no warning the illness came
like a dark truck in the main
the doctors spoke with practiced sighs
so I laid with you
until you died
this pain it rips me up inside
I wish it had been me that died
so I wander this world alone
dark eyes
heart of stone

Said the same thing!
by: Cindy

I have said the same thing.. wish it had been me that died instead of my husband. He took my heart to Heaven with him and I have no life here without him. We were together for almost 35 years and I don't know how to live this life without him. I just wonder in the dark... so very lonely. I hate going to bed because it is so lonely there without him. He was my whole life and I just don't even want to be here without him. He was so good to me.

I can't find a job and he was my support. He was so good to me and I haven't worked for years. I have a house mortgage and bills to pay and can't even get his social security until I am 60, and he was 10 years older. He was old enough to draw it but wanted to work longer just in case I needed anything if something happened to him.

Now it doesn't even matter. I wish he would have quit working. It happened so fast. Didn't even know he had heart problems... had a heart attack. They did quadruple bypass, I had him home two week and he was doing great. Sat down in the chair one night and said he felt dizzy and just fell back. I am so heart broken and lost in this world that I don't care if I go on. Life will never be the same without him.

We all are facing the same thing and I am so blessed that the person that created this site for us to come and share the same things. I pray for you and pray that we all have some peace with this grief and dark road we have to travel alone.
