as i sit in heaven

as i sit in heaven and watch you every day
i try and let you know with signs, i never went away.
i hear you when you're laughing, and watch you as you sleep
i even place my arms around you to calm you as you weep.
i see you wish the days away, begging to have me home
so i try to send you signs so you know you're not alone.
don't feel guilty that you have life that was denied to me
heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
so live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free
then i'll know with every breath you take
you'll be taking one for me.

Beautiful, I will pass this on to my best friend who just lost her husband of 34 years.

RE: as i sit in heaven

so very sorry for your friend's loss. it will soon be 6 years since i lost my husband. some days, i still struggle.

RE: as i sit in heaven

Thanks nina, I imagine you will have days you struggle for the rest of your life. As I told my girlfriend the day he passed away, "You & your life will never be the same" and shes repeated that back to me many times in the past 3 1/2 months.

RE: as i sit in heaven

yes, christine, i have found that grief is a very long road, one that i would much prefer not to have to travel but someone told me a while after gary's death that i cannot go around grief, i must go through it. please give your friend my best and tell her she will get through this. i cannot say it ever gets better, but it does get "different". more tolerable as time goes by and less a way of life.
