I love you through my pain

I love you through my loss

I love you through the tears

I'll love you still, through our lost years

You loved me when I couldn't

You loved me when I wouldn't

You taught me how to love

I know, you'll still love me from above

Thank you for the laughs

The fun times that'll forever last

I'll live now for us a both, that's a fact

I will love you always, to the moon and back

Thanks Shoosie. That is what Bill and I use to say, that and we fought over the "I love you more".  I am a fan of the ink.  I have one and getting ready for a tribute one for my love.

Thank you, Mrs Bear!  I have been have a rough few days with my grief- I'm 6 months out. I am printing this off and taping it to my kitchen cupboard so I'll remind myself how good I had it for 18 years.

Your title is what caught my eye, because my Rick and I used to say 'Buzz Lightyear', meaning I love to Infinity and Beyond. I have an Infinity necklace I never take off that has a tiny bit of his ashes inside, and I am thinking of getting a tiny Buzz Lightyear tattoo on my ankle. Only I will know what it means, but that's OK. I'm 61 and never had any ink before!

Aww Diva70.  I am glad the words brought you comfort. So sorry for your loss.  That is beautiful that he is leaving such a mark on the world and that his legacy will live on.   Those "first since" moment are totally tear markers. Thanks for sharing your story.

This is beautiful! On April 29 I lost my soulmate, my knight in shining armor, my prince charming. We had 50 wonderful years together. We endured the good, the bad and the ugly together. We experienced miscarriages, job losses, and physical illnesses. But we also were blessed to have raised two fine men and a darling daughter. Our eight grandchildren bought us tremendous joy and they adored their grandpa. He loved life and he enjoyed making people smile. Despite being on dialysis for the past three years he endured the rigorous procedure and he never complained. Even when his body began to weaken he maintained his optimism. Yesterday I had a meltdown triggered by a return to our community center. We would always walk the inside track together. Sometimes he'd have to stop and he'd gently urge me to continue. Walking that track bought back so many memories. But reading your words has reminded me of the joy we shared and it has given me comfort. Thank you so much!
