There Was A Time...

As you would know if you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, today would have been my wedding anniversary, had my Gordon not died.

While I am no longer in deep grief, it is still a rather upsetting day.  After all, I don't believe anyone could walk a mile in my shoes, or in the shoes of anyone who is widowed, and not have emotional feelings on special occasions, such as this is.

Who knows?  By next year, maybe today's date won't be quite as memorable.  Hopefully, not; I am trying my best to move forward with my life.

To honour this special day, I wrote a poem.  Here it is:

There Was A Time

There was a time
when I was your wife;
but, that now seems long ago.

Looking back, I wonder
just where the time went;
but, I must say, I don't know.

I'm trying my best
to look ahead
and not look back in sorrow.
 
For God's plan for me
will be revealed in His time,
either today, or maybe tomorrow.
 
You're in heaven now
with our Lord Jesus, above;
healed and blessed, and loved.

One day I'll join you
in sweet reverence,
where together we'll be grateful to God, above.

Until next time...
