There is life after death; but it comes in stages...there is happiness and peace, and love is special too...if blessed enough to find it. Grief however is ongoing, no matter what they say...and when you lose a love it's hard enough; but when you lose a friend as well...the pain goes even further... I'm blessed with a good new love; but I still miss my friend!

CAN YOU SIT AND TALK WITH ME? by: Linda Law
These last few days have been filled with such emotion
Remembering how once our lives were filled with such devotion
And no matter what I do, my mind still connects with you
Yesterday the ache was strong, just chalked it up to being blue
The roads I walk are filled with holes and darkness
When in the best of times, I'm blessed beyond the starkness
The weight upon my chest seems heavy and takes my breath
Yet I know, it's nothing more than what I feel is emptiness
How can I say that I am happy, and I do believe that I am...
And I know you understand.. I miss your love, and need to be loved again..
Just as you told me times before, without you...I can
Some days I look around in search of you in the hopes
that you can sit and talk with me... Just sit and talk with me...
You always listened, you always knew... even in the silence
Oh what a friend ... the very best friend...you always were to me
In the morning when I wake, I sometimes hear your little tune
Sometimes your scent; your presence seems to fill the room
Those days of knowing you had it all covered, knowing I didn't
You'd be surprised I think, to see how much I have hidden,
The world sees me strong and bright, and inside it is empty
What would you say if you could stay just for awhile
Would you understand, give me advice, or simply smile
Does this mean that life will always be one to keep me guilty
When I know you're gone, you're safe with God, I am happy
So, I don't mean that I am ungrateful, simply that I miss you
Our yesterdays are sealed and mine forever not to share
Today is fresh, and I've withstood the tests, yet there is always
emptiness... If you could just sit and talk with me...
Would you be sad or disappointed in how our lives have changed
It seems as if we placed too much upon your heart with burdens
Then it took awhile before I could begin to plan for tomorrow
You wouldn't even know me now, I cook, I drive, I'm not so afraid
No longer am I Ms.Daisy, as I take the wheel from state to state
You'd be amazed how fast I clear truckers off the highways
Our kids are grown, the grandbabies are now having babies
I searched the web for a man, if otherwomen could, I knew I can
Who would have thought an oldie like me would get another look
Yet, here I am...starting life again... just wrote my first, second and third books, yes my love.. I did it!
I don't know why, as each month comes along, even though it could be October... That was our time
then I remember that December was our time, the way we spent so much for the holidays, then it was February, and you were my Valentine..so I showered you with gifts and candy....you loved the getting
then the end of February was my time... and you did all the giving
Can't forget how April was the springtime and you'd take me on long drives...while July was the kids time, with lots of food and happy
So, I guess, each month seemed to be our time, while we were together.. but now the sad times seem to come with the weather..
This is the only way that I can say what is heavy on my heart
how I miss you still, and wish you could just sit and talk with me

|LOVE is above ALL things.
You wrote a beautiful LOVE poem.
GOD bless you for your spiritual blessings.

|This breathes nostalgia and yellowed newspaper clippings...but all mingled with little purple violets...don't know why... hee, hee... It is beautifully written and I felt your words. I sometimes feel the same way about certain friends in my life who I have lost touch with...wondering if they ever think of me...

|You are the fragrance in a breeze, the vision in a sunrise, the touch of a child, whatever to you, you know he's there because you only know you know. Your writing is therapy for yourself as well as for others. It is better to remember your love than to try to bring it to conclusion as though it never happened...Jerry|

|I see you wrote this poem on 10/10/08 10/10 is the anniversary of my mother's death. 42 years it has been and I still miss her physical presence- but her spiritual presence is always with me. An older friend of mine died last Friday 10/10. I will be writing about her soon.
I am so sorry that your LOVE is not with you anymore in the physical- but he surely is in the spiritual. I can feel his presence in your poetry as I am sure you can also. I am glad you have so many happy memories of him. Some people don't have those kind of sweet memories. So you are blessed. Keep writing with your heart as your LOVE guides your hand.

|He will always be there to love and inspire these great writes. And the great thing is, you can tell in all about the wonderful life you continued with as he watches on. It is so obvious that he still is there with you and always will be but he wants you to live and love and find the happiness until you meet again. Love, Bonnie|

What a wonderful tribute to your loved one!!! Losing someone who is a lifelong companion is like losing an arm. I can feel your pain in this one. I'm glad there is a new one who loves you, as you are well-deserved to be loved.
This poem displays great longings and wonderful endearing sentiments. Great job, Linda!!!

|Poignantly, powerfully penned, Linda, I'm sorry for your loss, still keenly felt: I know. I know - well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|Sadness felt in your pen; you're so right: grief never goes completely away. I still miss my mom, and it's been over 18 1/2 years since she died. And I'm missin' my daddy; he died in May. So this Christmas will not be very merry as we remember our father and think of our mom.
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(
