A Year


Recommended Posts

I've not been on here for a while.  I do stop by and read from time to time.  I've pretty much withdrawn from the world.  Just existing.  The year mark is coming up and I thought I would stop in and share a poem I wrote for Jerry.  Hugs to all my brokenhearted family here.


A Year

A year has passed
Since I've seen your face.
Touched your hand.
Or felt your Grace


A year of pain,
Sorrow and grief.
Haunting me 
With little relief.


A year has passed
Since your lips touched mine
With gentle strength
And love divine


A year of longing
And calling your name.
Nothing ever
To be the same


A year of silence
My ears gone deft
No notes of song
Or music left


A year of tears
Since you've been gone.
A year without you,
Has been too long.


In Loving Memory of Jerry R. Blackford 2/29/52 - 12/6/13

Frankly that is absolutely beautiful. I dread the day when I reach that first year. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as your "year mark" approaches. May peace be with you at this difficult time and into the future.
