I met my husband many years ago when he hit a crossroad in his life. I at that point was a very lost, lonely soul. He walked into my place of employment and I saw the halo that he wore. We fell in love at that point and hard. For years our life was a fairy tale; no worries, freedom, travel, passion and a lot of love. We spent years every day together without a cross word or a misunderstanding. I learned to love, laugh and like myself again. He made me feel beautiful and then I realized I was beautiful. I laughed like no tomorrow.
We were still on our honeymoon, we were buying a home, we planned many tropical retreats, we made love like no tomorrow... THEN he became sick on a wednesday with a cold, 9 days later he died. I spent 12-14 hours aday at his bedside praying that I would have him home again at my side. As each day only continued to take his life I asked why? Why now? I'm so in love with my husband, so happy, so perfect. Why?
I held his hand, we kissed, we cried, I talked he listened, I gave him my word. If this was the plan, I would hold his hand till he crossed over to the light. I cried, he squeezed my hand, then he was gone. I don't ask why now, I say THANK YOU for sending me an angel. I will forever be in love with my husband. But in my heart I hear, "MISS ME BUT LET ME GO".
