I am posting this for all who have lost their "rock",whether it be father(mine died Dec 2009),husband or other. I esp. want to sent this to writer for Ashley.Notice at the end of the poem that it is soothing.GOD BLESS YOU
MY ROCK

YOU WERE MY ROCK.
YOU WERE MY SHOULDER.
YOU WERE MY SAFE HAVEN
IN A STORM.

MY ROCK HAS BEEN CRUSHED.
MY SHOULDER IS GONE.
MY SAFE HAVEN IS NO LONGER.
I'M ALONE IN THE STORM

HOW CAN I COPE?
WHAT CAN I DO?
I'M AFRAID OF THINGS NOW
JUST LIKE I USED TO.

MY STOMACH IS IN KNOTS.
MY BRAIN IS IN A WHIRL.
MY INSIDES SHAKE.
YOU WERE MY WORLD.

I DON'T SLEEP WELL.
I SHIVER A LOT.
I JUST WANT TO CURL
UP INTO A BALL.

WHO DO I TALK TO?
WHOSE ARMS DO I
FALL INTO WHEN
I WANT TO CRY?

I WANT TO KNOW
WHY I COULDN'T GO.
WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME?
I LOVE YOU SO.

IT'S NOT THE SAME
SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE.
WHAT DO I DO?
HOW DO I CARRY ON?

MY HEART IS BROKEN
I CRY SO MUCH
MY BODY CRIES OUT FOR
YOUR TENDER TOUCH.

ALL I WANT IS TO BE
IN YOUR ARMS AGAIN.
ALL I WANT IS TO BE
BY YOUR SIDE 'TILL THE END.

YOU ARE MY SOUL.
YOU ARE MY HEART.
I LOVED YOU
RIGHT FROM THE START.

DON'T GO WITHOUT ME.
DON'T LEAVE ME BEHIND.
I NEED YOU THERE TO
EASE MY MIND.

WAIT FOR ME
AT THE GOLDEN GATE.
I'LL BE THERE,
BUT I'LL BE LATE.
IT'S NOT THE SAME

my rock-thank you john
by: silver

Sometimes it is so hard to be as strong as I feel I should be. I still cry and probably will for a long time. I hope you have found some friends that you can talk to.My kids say call them anytime.I once called one of them at 1:30 in the morning. I try not to because they work full time.(43 to 32)I wish we had more time.I never thought I would be a widow before I turned 62.I go to church and I am going to see what the senior center has to offer. I hope I will make some friends there. GOD BLESS you and continue to give you strength.

Thanks Silver
by: John

You have in idea how much you've helped me. I hope that you will write more soon. I can strongly connect with you, and as vulnerable as you seem, you appear equally as strong. That is a very rare find in a person. Thank you and God give us more strength.

for John
by: silver

I don't know what to say. It has been almost 16 months for me and I still struggle everyday.The good side is that I realize that his leaving was the best thing for him.He would have suffered so much had he stayed.I feel I would have suffered more to sit by and watch him waste away with chemo. He was a driver by profession and to just sit with oxygen and chemo 24/7 would have killed him quicker. I don't know what your situation was like but with my belief GOD had a need for her that was stronger than ours are for them. I pray for you,and others like us who were lucky enough to have had time with our soul mates.GOD BLESS you and give you strength.

I hope this helped some of you.I miss my darling husband so much. Please don't do what I did and cry so much that I ended up with severe bronchitis and have trouble with just coping now.I need to cry but I can't or I'll get sicker and that's not what he would have wanted.He loved life and our children. I know he wanted me to see their children grow up.Keep well and seek friends with like problems. GOD BLESS YOU ALL
