After nearly 40 years of marriage, my husband died suddenly of a heart attack and was cremated. I want to keep a small amount of my dear husband’s ashes near me at all times so my daughter is buying me the beautiful heart-shaped locket that I can wear whenever I leave the house. I will feel that he is always with me and I won’t feel so alone.
It is so difficult to lose your partner and best friend.
Thank you so much for letting me chatter on the ‘phone and for asking if I’d like my poem to go on your website to share with others.
Hearts and flowers.
Young hearts, so strong and full of love
Which conquers all.
Our lives, entwined like fronds of willow.
All our lives.
Bouquet of flowers every week,
Such delicate petals, blooming, blossoming,
Old hearts, so frail, they break.
