PLEASE HOLD ME CLOSE AND DO NOT GO AWAY….
Daily I hope that, GOD or someone will check in on me.
For those calls that give me comfort I need to hear and see.
Believe me when I say to those who really care,
“I Love You All”
For my grief is strong, as yet I cannot repair.
Please hold me close and do not go away.
Please visit me, for I beg you - do stay?
Talk to me and please listen, for the one, whom I lost, can no longer speak.
I need “YOU ALL NOW” do not pass me by till next week.
Though my emotions are muddled, my needs unknown.
I need to be with others, for I lost my “Best Friend” yo know.
Not knowing as now, I am for first time in 28 years but on my own.
This at times makes me want to scream, rant and shout.
Would this nightmare please just go away, Oh please do not be frightened.
For those who really care, I won’t push you out!
I smile at you – “Look he’s not that bad”
I shout near you – “Really he’s not going mad”
I speak to you – “Never able to replace her, what do I say?”
I show you my tears – “Please they will dry quickly, do not walk away”
Fear not, it’s not catchy, this grief which I feel.
Sorry, as I cannot pretend that it’s not real.
I just carry on the best of which I now know.
JESUS my LORD please note; that this pain inside me just won’t let me go.
So my “True Friends”, forget me not.
As might shout, I do cry, I just lost my wife, half of my life’s plot.
For I do know what I need, yes its but her, again each and every day!
Though now she is gone, someone please hold me close and do not go away…
