Don’t Look So Sad
He unfolded the note, the last note she ever wrote, and read…..
Don’t look so sad, my darling husband, I know it’s over. But life will go on, and the whole world will just keep right on a turning. Just be glad we had some time to spend together. There’ll be time enough for sadness when I’m gone. So, lay your head upon my pillow, and hold my warm and tender body next to yours, And let's pretend we still have forever………
…….. He stopped there, for he couldn’t bear the pain of her silent breath…….
He kissed her cheek and wept!

Love always

So sad to read this, must be hard this time of year during the holiday season.  But what a beautiful note to have and cherish. It’s been 4 years since my husband passed does get little easier but some days or moments are always difficult.

This is a safe place where you can let your feelings out and just cry if you need to.  Sometimes it's all I can do because I hurt so bad.

Just reading your comment made me weep, I broke down halfway through it and had a heartbreaking cry.  Memories are embedded in our hearts so deep they hurt. 

Thanks for the post.

Your post brought tears to my eyes.  "For the Good Times" was our song.  I hadn't listened to it since my husband's passing 17 months ago.  After reading your post I played it but broke down halfway through and had to turn it off.  I'm grateful for every one of the 52 years we had together but will be forever sad that we didn't have a few more.  Bless you and may you find comfort.
