"That makes me sob all the more. It's beautiful and sad at the same time. Callie2, maybe it's because I've never had a dream of my beloved Marty since he died 6 months and 1 week ago? Maybe it's something else?"

"My Heart Will Go On, by Celine Dion and another beautiful song was The Prayer by Bocelli and Dion. The latter, not exactly what you look for but very inspiring and spiritual, worth hearing on YouTube."

There is music for unrequited love, music for found love, and music for lost love (break ups).  It would be great if there was music for those who lost their loved ones to death.When my husband died in 2016, someone here kindly suggested, Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.  Its not really about widowhood, but its the closest thing I am aw are of.I wonder why we are ignored in the world of music, and how long it will be before someone thinks of us!See More

"Kenslove,     Yes, please teach them that! Now that Paul is gone, I'm lost. He was my life! Feel free to use me as an example of what NOT to do. Don't depend solely on a man. Susan"

Thank you for your response.  I'm new at this website.  I am trying to get into going out with women that are widows too.  I need adult companionship.  I love my daughter and granddaughter very much, but I need some other interaction.
