My eyes have cried too many tears this year,
My heart aches from 2 good-byes so very near,
First, my husband – his absence so deep and wide,
Now, our sweet Mia. is not here to protect and guide.
So run on, dear Mia, along Daddy’s side once more,
Give him my love, and be his friend as you were before,
You were our dog, a good and faithful one to the end,
I will miss you til it is my time to Heavenly ascend.
Doing my best to cope,
Without my best half, Barry
God, give me Your hope!
Girl dances so free,
Music guides her steps, you see,
To her heart’s great love.
Feet fly weightless like white doves,
In the cloudless sky high above,
The two fit like gloves.
Fiction and Friction Haiku
Grins may be fiction,
Not wanting to create friction,
I smile through tears!

Renewed in Heaven
Won’t keep me from missing him
Fly with the Eagle, my love until we meet
up there in Heaven at Jesus’ feet.
Memories are so wonderful – so sweet,
They bring me smiles, laughter and tears.
They do help make my days complete.
So many memories of people, no longer with me,
Grandpas, Grandmas, Mom, Dad and Barry,
God trained me to separate from Grandparents and parents, bit by bit,
I grew up, made our own way with patience and so much grit.
Yet with Barry, I left home and my childhood behind to become one,
Eventually, the couple may become parents to a daughter, not a son.
There are memories by the thousands until one day, He was called Home,
Thus, those memories become sweet comfort, and yet, a source of sadness, of memories no more – and I am all alone.
