My tears come easily, I could not believe he was gone-
However there was no way that I would want him to go on.
He suffered for so long he was a brave soul indeed-
There were just so many things in which he was in need.
He had truly not been my Mate for at least the last 6 years-
Once he lost his drivers license that just increased his fears.
My tears are in remembering the tough times that he had-
However, underneath it all he was our children’s good ol’ Dad.
I pray he is in heaven with our Lord above & free-
Free from all the pain & strife that kept him from being he.
As Captain of his very own yacht, he is now boating in oceans galore-
He is golfing with past buddies & obtaining a perfect score!
He is running as many marathons as he possibly can run-
And enjoying every one of them – now they are all for fun!
However, now I’m finding my tears are just as selfish as can be-
I’m not wanting to let him go – yes- my tears are for me.
I pray our Lord will make me brave but keep me humble too-
Allowing me to help another – now in all I say and do.
