Resting Place

by Steven
(Perth, Western Australia)

Nineteen years we spent together
Almost half our life
And how incredibly privileged I felt
For you to be my wife

But now you're gone, I'm all alone
I don't know what to do
I can't go on just by myself
Not sharing it with you

We've picked your plot, your resting place
An empty spot beside
I count the days when once again
I'll be lying at your side

When that will be is not yet written
That is up to fate
I only hope it's not too long
And I have the strength to wait

thank you for your poetry
by: Hearbroken

Dear Steven,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful poety.

I truly shed tears. My mum shared my operations in the last year and cared for my brother. She might have not have been able to walk but the comfort and courage she gave us both was truly inspirational.

Last week I was in the shop and a man screamed at me for pushing in the que. I cannot see on my right side and rather than tell him I burst into tears. I cried for the rest of the day, I just wanted her to comfort me.

I have reserved a place next to her and look forward to being at her side once again.
